Publishers'  Circular 

Turning  Over 


Although  it  is  against  our  interests  to 
advocate  any  reduction  in  the  production 
of  books,  we  can  come  to  no  other  con- 
clusion when  thinking  of  the  present 
position  of  the  book  trade  than  this : 
Too  many  books  spoil  the  book  market. 
It  is  an  ancient  conclusion  and  an  un- 
profitable one.  Every  publisher  admits 
its  truth,  but  no  publisher  will  admit  it  is 
true  concerning  his  own  productions. 

The  fact  is,  although  nominally  one, 
every  publisher,  and  every  publishing 
concern,  consists  of  two  unequal  parts — 
there  is  the  fascinating  literary  side  and 
the  humdrum  business  side — and  it  is  this 
dual  character  which  is  mainly  responsible 
for  the  over-production  of  books.  The 
literary  or  producing  side  is  always,  or 
nearly  always,  too  strong  for  the  business 
or  disposing  side  ;  it  is  little  use  for  the 
latter  to  cry,  "  Stop !  give  us  breathing 
time,  come  and  look  at  the  stock  rooms, 

hear  what  our  town  and  country  travellers 
say."  No,  hope  springs  eternal  in  the 
better  part  of  the  publisher's  heart  and 
drowns  the  still  small  voice  of  the,  by 
experience,  wiser  part.  If  the  matter  is 
considered  from  the  point  of  view  of  the 
greatest  good  for  the  greatest  number, 
perhaps  it  is  a  good  thing  that  the 
publisher's  hopes  for  success  in  publishing 
new  books  are  so  little  daunted  by  dis- 
appointment in  the  sale  of  old  ones  ;  but 
we  refer  to  the  book  trade  side  of  the 
question.  In  truth,  the  fascination 
of  publishing  is  endless.  To  be  the  first 
to  see  a  new  author,  to  advise  and 
suggest,  to  help  materially  in  the  pro- 
duction of  what  may  presently  be  a 
welcomed  addition  to  the  world's  litera- 
ture, to  be  continually  bowling  at  the 
wicket  of  success  :  what  wonder  that  the 
"  no  balls,"  "  wides,"  the  unkind  cuts  of 
the  critics,  the  catches  missed  and  the 
drives  mto  oblivion  are  forgotten  when 
the  roar  of  applause  conies  at  last. 
And  provided  it  comes  often  enough  to 
cover  his  losses,  success,  though  it  leaves 
little  profit,  leaves  the  publisher  happy 
in  the  pursuit  of  fortune  in  perhaps  the 
most  fascinating  of  professions. 

Probably  every  publisher  has  deter- 
mined, like  everybody  else,  to  turn  over  a 
new  leaf  in  this  New  Year — many  new 
ones  in  fact — to  contemplate  anything 
else  would  conjure  up  visions  of  the 
extinction  of  new  literature — but  we 
venture  to  suggest,  with  not  the  slightest 
semblance  Of  dictation,  that  to  turn  over 
old  leaves  might  be  profitable — to  glance 
back  at  the  serried  ranks  of  "  New  Book  " 
columns  in  the  P.C. — or,  better,  to  wait  a 
week  or  two  for  our  annual  volume  of  the 
English  Catalogue  of  Books  made  up 
from  those  lists  and  other  sources. 

Although  we  say  so,  these  annual 
volumes  are  an  admirable  assistance  to  a 
publisher.  By  turning  over  their  pages 
he  can  very  easily  ascertain  what  books 
have  been  published  on  any  subject,  who 
wrote  them,  who  published  them,  their 
size,  price,  and  date  of  publication.  It 
is  certain  that  publishers  cannot  re- 
member or  even  know  all  the  books  that 
have  been  published  on  a  certain  subject ; 
and,  when  a  new  book  on  that  subject  is 
offered,  to  be  able  to  ascertain  in  a  few 
minutes  exactly  what  books  already 
exist  may  save  heavy  loss — in  any  case 
it  puts  the  publisher  in  the  strong  position 
of  making  the  author  justify  the  exist- 
ence of  his  work  and  its  chances  of 
success  against  rivals  already  established  ; 
it  is  also  an  invaluable  guide  in  deciding 
questions  of  size  and  price. 

The  best  way,  perhaps,  to  use  the 
English  Catalogue  for  this  purpose  would 
be,  when  sending  a  manuscript  to  a 
reader,  to  send  also  a  list  of  works  on  the 
subject  in  order  that  he  may  examine 
at  any  rate  those  which  appeared  likely 

to  be  formidable  rivals — the  reader 
would  deserve,  and  doubtless  get,  an 
increased  fee,  but  it  would  be  a  cheap 
insurance  against  the  most  common 
cause  of  loss  to  publishers  :  the  attempt 
to  plant  a  new  book  successfully  in  a  field 
already  full. 

What  is  the  most  solid  argument  a 
publisher's  traveller  has  to  contend  with 
when  offering  a  new  work  to  a  book- 
seller ?  Obviously  it  is  another  book  on 
the  same  subject  which  he  has  already  in 

We  hope  it  will  not  be  imagined  that 
our  suggestion  as  to  this  particular  use 
of  the  English  Catalogue  is  made  in  order 
to  advertise  it  and  induce  publishers  to 
buy  it— it  is  already  bought  by  prac- 
tically everyone  publishing  many  books. 
It  is  made  in  the  belief  that  it  offers 
a  practical  way  of  lessening  what  every- 
one admits  to  be  the  crushing  burden  of 
the  book  trade— the  production  of  books 
which  are  not  wanted. 

Notes  and  Announcements 

The  awful  calamity  which  has  fallen 
upon  the  Italians  has  thrown  a  deep 
shadow  on  the  whole  world.  The  close 
and  friendly  relations  between  Italy  and 
Great  Britain  make  our  sympathy  all  the 
deeper,  and  it  is  very  gratifying  to  find 
our  war-ships  among  the  first  to  bring 
such  relief  as  may  be  possible. 

Publishers  looking  for  a  perfect  paper 
on  which  to  print  a  book  worthy  of  it, 
might  look  at  that  used  by  Mr.  Heine- 
mann  in  his  "  Life  of  James  McNeill 
Whistler."  It  will  give  them  an  oppor- 
tunity, too,  to  admire  some  of  the  best 
printing  that  even  Messrs.  Ballantyne, 
Hanson  &  Co.  have  ever  done.  And 
last,  but  not  least,  the  chance  glancing 
at  a  page  or  two  will  lure  them  on  to 
reading  one  of  the  most  interesting 
biographies  ever  published.  The  good 
stories  are  innumerable. 

A  Frenchman  in  Chelsea  taught  art 
and  sold  tapestry.  Whistler  bought  a 
number  of  things  from  him.  "  But  vill 
he  pay,  zis  Vistlaire,  vill  he  pay  ?  "  the 
man  asked  ;  and,  at  last  one  evening  he 
went  to  Eindsey  Row.  A  cab  was  at&the 
door.  The  maid  said  Whistler  was  not 
in,  but  the  man  heard  his  voice  and 

pushed   past,    and   said    afterwards :  

"  Upstairs,  I  find  him,  before  a  little 
picture  painting,  and  behind  him  ze 
bruzzers  Greaves  holding  candles.  And 
Vistlaire  he  say  :  '  You  are  ze  very  man 
I  vant ;  hold  a  candle  !  '  And  I  hold  a 
candle.  And  Vistlaire  he  paint  and  he 
paint,  and  zen  he  take  ze  picture,  and  he 
go  downstairs,  and  he  get  in  ze  cab,  and 
he  drive  off,  and  we  hold  ze  candle,  and  I 
see  him  no  more.  Mon  Dieu,  '  il  est 
terrible,  ce  Vistlaire  !  " 

But  he  was  paid  the  next  day. 

The  Nineteenth  Century  and  After  for 
January  contains  "  Is  Invasion  Possible  " 
by    Major-General    Frank    S.  Russeil

by  Colonel  the  Earl  of  Erroll,  K.T. 



Publishers'  Circular 

January  2,  1909 

His  many  friends  and  the  countless 
admirers  of  his  writings  will  regret  to  hear 
that  Mr.  W.  Clark  Russell  has  been  seriously 
ill  for  two  months — and  is  so  still — from  a 
combination  of  neuritis,  gout  and  arthritis. 
The  great  novelist  of  the  sea  has  weathered 
so  many  storms — his  life  for  thirty  years 
has  been  one  long  courageous  fight 
against  ill-health — that  we  trust  his 
resolute  spirit  will  conquer  again. 

Harper's  Magazine  for  January  is  an 
extremely  interesting  number.  It  con- 
tains an  account  from  her  own  pen  of 
"  The  First  Ascent  of  Mount  Huscaran," 
by  Miss  Annie  S.  Peck.  If  Mount  Hus- 
caran is  not  the  highest  mountain  in  the 
world  it  is  next  door  to  it.  Alpine  climbers 
will  appreciate  the  difficulties  when  two 
of  the  best  Swiss  guides  Miss  Peck  could 
get  were  almost  daunted  ;  ha  fact,  one 
retired.  It  is  a  modest  record  of  magni- 
ficent pluck.  The  same  number  has  an 
equally  modest  account  of  the  Charge  of 
the  Light  Brigade  by  one  who  charged 
with  it. 

A  new  book  by  M.  Camille  Flam- 
marion,  the  delightful  writer  and  dis- 
tinguished French  scientist,  will  be 
published  on  January  4th  by  Mr.  T. 
Fisher  Unwin.  It  is  entitled,  "  Mysterious 
Psychic  Forces."  and  its  purpose  is  to 
show  what  truth  there  is  in  the  pheno- 
mena of  table  turnings,  table  movings 
and  table  tappings,  hi  the  communica- 
tions received  therefrom,  in  levitations 
that  contradict  the  laws  of  gravity,  hi 
the  moving  of  objects  without  contact,  hi 
unexplained  noises,  or  the  stories  told  of 
haimted  houses. 

Mr.  Unwin  will  publish  on  January 
4th  a  novel  entitled,  "  The  Ways  of 
Men,"  by  Mr.  Herbert  Flowerdew,  author 
of  "  The  Third  Kiss  "  and  "  A  Celibate's 
Wife."  "  The  Ways  of  Men  "  is  the  story 
of  a  girl's  hazardous  adventure  hi  mar- 
riage and  of  a  man  who  was  asked  to 
choose  between  love  and  fidelity  on  the 
one  hand,  and  on  the  other  wealth  and  an 
important  social  position. 

Miss  Florence  Warden's  new  novel, 
"  The  Baronet's  Wife,"  will  be  published 
on  January  4th  by  Mr.  Unwin. 

"  We  sold  more  six-shilling  novels  on 
Christmas  Eve  than  on  any  two  days  of 
the  year,"  Mr.  Frank  Denny,  of  the  well- 
known  Strand  bookselling  firm,  told  an 
Express  representative.  "  Literally  whole 
rows  of  them  went.  They  were  bought  in 
threes  and  fours,  though  preference  was, 
of  course,  shown  to  the  established 
authors.  From  this  year's  experience, 
I  should  say  that  the  fashion  of  giving 
books  as  presents  is  growing." 

Messrs.  Swan  Sonnenscluin  i\:  Co. 
will  publish  in  January  a  volume  of 
articles  by  l  he  late  Harry  Quilter,  en- 
titled "  Opinions  of  Men,  Women  and 
Tilings."  This  will  contain  reprints  of 
some  magazine  articles  which  were  much 
commented  on  at  the  time  they  were 
published,  and  also  several  unpublished 
articles  as  outspoken  as  anything  written 
by  Mr.  Quilter. 

Cassell's  Saturday  Journal  for  January 
9th  will  contain  the  opening  instalment 
of  a  new  serial  by  Henry  Farmer,  the 
well  known  and  popular  writer.  This 
story,  the  editor  informs  his  readers,  will 
"  be  one  of  the  strongest  ever  published 
in  the  paper,  and  is  likely  to  attract  con- 
siderable attention."  The  trade  are 
advised  to  note  this  issue  and  prepare 
for  an  increased  demand.  A  handsome 
coloured  poster  will  be  supplied  by  the 
publishers  on  application. 

The  popularity  of  the  Story-Teller 
remains  undiminished,  in  spite  of  the 
heavy  competition  it  has  met,  and 
retailers  should  not  fail  to  order  the 
February  number. 

His  Majesty  the  King  has  graciously 
accepted  a  specially  bound  copy  of  the 
New  Rules  of  Golf  as  authorised  by  the 
Royal  and  Ancient  Golf  Club,  of  which 
His  Majesty  is  Patron,  sent  him  by  the 
authorised  publishers,  Messrs.  W.  C. 
Henderson  &  Son,  University  Press,  St. 
Andrews.  The  New  Rules  are  published 
in  several  editions  and  in  several  styles 
of  bindings  for  pocket  and  Club  use,  and 
came  into  force  on  January  1st. 

It  is  interesting  to  note,  hi  connection 
with  the  recent  award  of  the  Nobel  Prize 
for  literature,  that  "  Rudolf  Eucken's 
Philosophy  of  Life,"  by  Prof.  W.  R. 
Boyce  Gibson  (A.  &  C.  Black)  is  already 
in  a  second  edition.  Prof,  and  Mrs. 
Gibson  have  almost  ready  for  publication 
in  the  spring,  Eucken's  "  The  Meaning 
and  Value  of  Life." 

The  "  Illustrative  Election,"  organ- 
ised by  the  Proportional  Representation 
Society,  aroused  considerable  interest. 
A  full  account  of  the  election  appears  hi 
No.  9  of  Representation  and,  in  view 
of  the  Committee  of  Inquiry  promised 
by  Mr.  Asquith,  we  are  glad  to  direct  the 
attention  of  our  readers  to  it. 

The  English  Department  of  the  Yale 
University  has  made  the  subject  of  their 
Jolm  Hubbard  Curtis  #100  prize  conti  st 
"  Critical  Essays  on  the  Novels  of  Wil- 
liam de  Mordan." 

Messrs.  Sealy,  Bryers  &  Walker  will 
issue  this  month  two  important  books. 
"  The  Predominant  Partner — His  Rights 
and  His  Duties,"  by  J.  Shaw  Mulhollaud, 
B.L.,  Inner  Temple,  is  a  brilliant  essay 
on  the  present  social,  political  and 
economic  condition  of  Ireland.  Dealing 
with  Govermental  methods  in  Ireland, 
this  book  will  be  a  revelation  to  English- 
men, for  whilst  showing  hi  what  respects 
the  Predominant  Partnership  has  been 
detrimental  to  Ireland,  lie  admits  its 
desirability.  "  Midland  Septs  and  The 
Pale,"  by  F.  R.  M.  Hitchcock,  give  to  the 
Midland  of  Ireland  a  history  of  its 
ancient  families.  Mr.  Hitchcock  is 
already  known  as  the  author  of  "  Types 
of  Celtic  Life  and  Art,"  a  critical  con- 
sideration of  the  Celtic  social  systems, 
1  and  many  other  important  volumes.  In 
the  present  he  treats  fully  of  the  relations 
of  the  various  families  with  the  inhabi- 
tants of  the  Pale. 

Measrs.  Constable  are  about  to  publish 
the  first  volume  of  a  series  of  Con- 
cordances, which  will  be  of  the  greatest 

;  interest  to  students  of  English  literature. 
The  work  appears  under  the  auspices  of 
The  Concordance  Society,  which  was 
organised  at  Yale  University  hi  1906. 

,  The  author  chosen  for  this  first  volume 

!  is  Thomas  Grav. 

Messrs.  Constable  will  publish  imme- 
diately an  abridged  and  less  expensive 
edition^ of  "The  Life  of  Sir  Charles 
Bright,"  the  distinguished  pioneer  of 
ocean  telegraphy,  whose  name  will  always 
be  associated  with  the  laying  of  the  first 
trans  -  Atlantic  cable.  In  its  original 
form  the  work  was  recognised  as  a  solid 
contribution  to  biography.  This  edition 
has  been  revised  by  Mr.  Charles  Bright 
F.R.S.E.  ' 

Mr.  R.  W.  Seton-Watson,  who  signs 
himself  "  Scotus  Viator,"  has  a  new 
volume  coming  from  Messrs.  Constable, 
entitled,  "  Racial  Problems  in  Hungary." 
It  is  a  discussion,  based  on  personal 
observation,  of  the  racial  problems  of 

Mr.  Martinus  Nijhoff,  Bookseller,  of 
The  Hague,  publishes  in  English  two 
interesting  works  by  J.  J.  M.  De  Groot 
Professor  in  the  University  of  Ley  den 
on  Chinese  Religion,  Philosophv,  Folk- 
lore and  Politics.  One  is  entitled 
"  Sectarianism  and  Religious  Persecution 
in  China.  A  page  in  the  history  of 
religions."  It  is  an  attempt,  and  claims 
to  be  the  first,  to  trace  the  reasons  for  the 
intolerance  of  the  Chinese  versus  the 
Christians  hi  China.  The  other  work  is 
"  The  Religious  System  of  China.  Its 
ancient  forms,  evolutions,  history  and 
present  aspect ;  manners,  customs  and 
social  institutions  connected  therewith." 
This  work  is  an  attempt  to  depict  the 
Chinese  religion  as  it  is  reallv  practised 
by  the  nation,  and  to  sketch  on  a  broad 
scale  its  influence  on  domestic  and  social 
life.  It  is  the  fruit  of  an  intimate  contact 
with  the  Chinese  race  for  several  years. 
Since  first  setting  foot  on  the  wide"  field 
of  sinological  studies,  the  author  has 
adopted  a  course  of  systematically  com- 
mitting to  paper  whatever  customs, 
usages  and  religious  observances  pre- 
sented themselves  to  his  view  either  in 
the  Middle  Kingdom  or  the  transmarine 
colonies  where  Chinese  emigrants  have 
settled  ;  no  opportunity  of  acquiring  an 
insight  into  the  different  phases  of  social 
and  religious  life  of  the  Chinese  has  been 
i  allowed  to  escape  him. 

The  leader  of  the  Anglo-American 
Polar  Expedition,  Captain'  Ejnar  Mik- 
kelsen,  whose  book,  "  Conquering  the 
Arctic  Ice,"  will  be  published  by  Mr. 
Heinemann  on  January  12th,  is  at  present 
in  Copenhagen,  where  he  lectured  last 
week  before  the  Geographical  Society  of 
Denmark,  amongst  his  audience  being 
the  King  and  Queen  of  Denmark  and 
other  members  of  the  Roval  Familv. 
Previous  to  tliis  he  has  lectured  on  his 
Arctic  travels  at  Brussels.  Antwerp. 
Liege,  Amsterdam,  Rotterdam,  Leiden 
and  the  Hague.

The    Publishers'  Circular 


"  The  Publishers'  Circular"  Annual  Summary  of  the 
Numbers  and  Classes  of  Books  Published  in  1908 

Like  most  businesses,  publishing  has  suffered  a  slight  depression  during  the  past  year, 
although  it  is  still  well  above  any  year  previous  to  1907.  The  total  number  of  New  Books 
recorded  as  published  in  1908  is  9,821,  a  decrease  of  93  as  compared  with  1907.  This  decrease 
is  inconsiderable,  but  on  analysing  the  figures  it  will  be  seen  that  there  also  has  been  a  fall 
in  the  average  class  of  book  published.  Thus  in  New  Books  (as  opposed  to  New  Editions) 
there  has  been  a  decrease  of  189  during  the  year,  while  there  has  been  an  increase  of  96  in 
New  Editions.  That  is  to  say,  a  considerably  greater  proportion  of  cheap  reprints  have 
appeared.  This  has  been  the  case  especially  in  Fiction,  Religion  and  Philosophy,  and  Political 
and  Social  Economy  ;  and  an  example  is  afforded  by  the  Fiction  published  during  July, 
when  177  books  were  issued,  of  which  88  or  practically  50  per  cent,  were  New  Editions.  Taking 
the  year's  output  class  by  class  there  are  the  following  decreases  :  Religion,  28  ;  Educa- 
tional, 60;  Political  and  Social,  92;  History,  13;  Year  Books,  24;  Medicine,  32;  and 
Belles  Lettres,  79  ;  while  there  are  increases  in  the  following  classes  :  Fiction,  5  ;  Law,  17  ; 
Arts  and  Sciences,  55  ;  Voyages,  49  ;  Poetry,  42  ;  and  Miscellaneous,  67.  The  information 
to  hand  seems  to  indicate  an  increased  output  during  the  coming  year,  the  figures  for  December, 
1908,  showing  an  increase  of  26  per  cent,  over  the  previous  year,  and  no  doubt  the  total  for 
the  year  1909  will  run  into  five  figures.

Our  Book  Trade  Notes 
from  Glasgow 

By  "  Mungo  " 

The  rush  of  Christmas  trade  is  over  for 
another  year,  and  the  bookseller  has 
now  time  to  look  round  his  stock  and 
consider  whether  or  not  his  autumn 
buying  has  been  justified,  and  if  full 
advantage  has  been  taken  of  the  oppor- 
tunity the  season  offers  to  clear  :his 
shelves  of  miscellaneous  books.  $ 

When  the  public  confine  their  buying 
to  one  short  week  there  is  a  tendency  to 
fall  back  on  two  or  three  books  which 
have  been  declared  favourites  ;  this  is 
especially  obvious  in  the  case  of  fiction, 
where  the  field  of  choice  is  so  wide  and 
varied.  And  in  Glasgow,  from  among 
several  good  novels,  Mary  Johnston's 
"  Lewis  Rand  "  takes  the  first  place, 
while  "  Stewart  of  Lovedale,"  by/^Dr. 
Wells,  shares  with  Dr.  Robertson  Nicol's 
"  Ian  Maclaren  "  a  similar  position  in 

"  A  Midsummer  Night's  Dream," 
with.  Mr.  Rackham's  illustrations,  has 
been  the  most  popular  of  the  larger 
colour  books  ;  in  fact,  some  customers 
complain  of  its  being  too  popular,  one 
remarking  that  he  had  received  six 
copies,  each  given  by  a  relative.  There 
is  something  reminiscent  here  of  the 
refrain  to  one  of  the  songs  sung  by  the 
Admiral  in  "  Pinafore." 

The  book,  the  sales  of  which  will 
head  all  others  in  Glasgow,  is  the  attrac- 
tive edition  of  Ramsay's  "  Reminiscences 
of  Scottish  Life  and  Character,"  issued 
by  Mr.  Foulis  with  H.  W.  Kerr's  illustra- 
tions in  colour.  A  large  sale  was  expected 
for  this  volume,  but  I  think  the  demand 
must  have  astonished  even  its  optimistic 

The  feature  of  this  season,  however,  is 
the  increasing  popularity  of  those  book- 
lets that  are  taking  the  place  of  Christmas 
cards,  and  here  again  Mr.  Foulis  gets 
honourable  mention,  for  he  combines 
taste  in  selection  with  taste  in  produc- 
tion, and  the  enormous  sale  which  these 
little  books  sent  out  by  him  have  had 
proves  that  he  has  hit  the  public  fancy. 
The  smaller  shilling  booklets,  as  published 
by  Messrs.  Harrap,  Messrs.  Seigle,  Hill  and 
Messrs.  Nimmo  in  velvet  calf  or  in  what 
a  bibliophile  friend  of  mine  unkindly 
referred  to  as  "  pussy-cat  covers,"  are 
also  making  a  place  for  themselves  as 
substitutes  for  cards. 

Notwithstanding  the  mikind  remark 
of  my  friend  (who,  by  the  way,  is  also  a 
poet,  using  that  term  in  its  wider 
sense)  these  booklets  are  infinitely  more 
satisfactory  remembrancers  to  send  to 
one's  friends  at  Christmas  time  than  the 
once-popular  card.  They  are  not  for 
adults  in  literature,  but  have  a  missionary 
influence,  and  an  essay  of  Emerson's,  a 
few  "  chips  "  from  Marcus  Aurelius,  or  a 
selection  from  a  popular  poet,  may  lead 
the  reader  to  become  better  acquainted 
with  the  author's  work. 

On  the  whole,  the  Christmas  trade  in 
Glasgow  has  been  satisfactory  ;  after  a 
long  spell  of  comparative  depression 
business  came  away  early  in  the  month, 
and  although  the  difficulty  in  selling  the 
larger  books  still  remains,  the  returns 
cannot  be  found  fault  with,   and  the

increasing  number  of  net  books  tides  over 
a  period  of  slack  trade  in  a  way  that  did 
not  obtain  some  ten  years  ago.  It  is 
xuifortnnate  that  the  facility  with  which 
landlords  can  add  fifty  pounds  to  the 
rent  cannot  be  dealt  with  as  successfully 
as  was  the  discount  system. 

The  Passing  of  English 
Literary  Treasures  to 

WE  have  often  pointed  out  the  fact  that 
there  is  an  insatiable  demand  among 
wealthy  Americans  for  the  rare  treasures 
of  English  literature.  There  is  no  doubt 
that  the  purchaser  of  Lord  Amherst's 
splendid  collection  of  Caxtons  was  Mr. 
J.  Pierpont  Morgan,  so  those  sixteen 
items  including  the  earliest  book 
printed  in  English  have  gone  to 
the  American  shore.  The  world 
now  knows  that 

John  P.  Morgan  he 
Buys  every  rare  book  that  he  can 

He  has  bought  all  of  Horace  Wal- 
pole's  letters,  as  well  as  many  manu- 
scripts of  Byron,  Shelley,  Samuel 
Johnson,  Dickens,  Thackeray,  Lamb, 
Mary  Stuart,  Lord  Cornwallis,  Swift, 
Napoleon,  Walter  Scott  and  many 
others.  His  library  contains  an  unsur- 
passed collection  of  fine  bindings, 
including  ancient  books  in  ivory,  gold 
and  enamel  set  with  gems.  The 
Caxtons,  Aldines  and  Gutenbergs,  the 
Elzevirs  and  Wynkyn  de  Wordes  ; 
the  collections  of  first  editions, 
including  the  best  obtainable  copies 
of  all  that  bibliophiles  most  approve  ; 
the  volumes  with  rich  historical 
associations,  the  missals  and  Prayer 
Books,  the  early  Bibles,  the  rare 
prints,  the  extra-illuminated  books, 
the  Chaldean  and  Babylonian  tablets 
make  up  the  realisation  of  a  collec- 
tor's dream 

"It  is  too  much  to  expect," 
the  New  York  Times  says,  "  that 
this  treasure  house  will  be  thrown 
open  to  public  examination.  But 
a  complete  catalogue  of  its  collec- 
tions, with  plates,  prepared  by  an 
expert  bibliophile,  would  be  of  the 
greatest  public  value  and  interest." 

A  Directory  of  A  merican 
"Publishers  "  (?) 

WE  have  received  from  the  office  of  the 
New  York  Publishers'  Weekly  what  it 
calls  "  A  Directory  of  Publishers  " — i.e., 
those  issuing  books  in  the  United  States 
from  January  1st,  1905,  to  December 
31st,  1907.  There  must  be  3,750  names 
in  this  Directory,  and  a  very  brief 
examination  of  the  list  shows  that  the 
use  of  the  word  "  publisher  "  is  somewhat 

For  instance,  because  a  college  or 
university  issues  a  magazine  it  is  inserted 
in  this  list  of  publishers  as  a  publisher. 
Then  Mr.  Wellborn,  Librarian  of  the 
Georgia  State  Library,  published  some 
small  volume,  and  so  figures  in  the  list 
as  a  publisher.  It  is  a  case  of  ex  uno 
disce  omnes  with  a  vengeance — e.g., 
Vacuum  Oil  Co.,  Tennessee  Valley  Perti 

lizer  Co.  It  is  certain  that  these  and  a 
great  number  of  others  in  this  list  are 
not  exactly  publishers  in  the  sense  that 
we  use  the  word  in  this  countrv. 

Mr.  Benjamin  Leach 

The  many  friends  and  admirers  of 
Mr.  B.  Leach,  who  for  many  years 
represented  Messrs.  Ward,  Lock  &  Co., 
Ltd.,  both  on  the  road  and  as  depart- 
mental manager,  will  be  interested  to 
learn  that  he  is  severing  his  long  con- 
nection with  this  house  to  take  up  an 
important  position  with  Messrs.  Cass<  11 
&  Co.,  Ltd.  From  the  general  knowledge 
of  liis  activity  and  untiring  energy  there 
is  no  reason  to  doubt  success  will  follow 
him  hi  his  new  sphere. 

A  Year  of  Books 

THE  many  people  who  never  quite  know 
how  to  use  books  of  reference  should  be 
interested  to  learn  of  the  announcement 
by  Sir  Isaac  Pitman  &  Sons.  Ltd.,  of  the 
immediate  publication  of  a  s(  cond  revised 
and  enlarged  edition  of  "  Where  to  Look," 
an  easy  guide  to  books  of  reference.  The 
success  of  the  first  edition  is  taken  as 
amply  demonstrating  the  necessity  for 
such  a  work,  and  in  consequence  of  the 
quick  demand  for  a  second  edition  the 
publishers  have  taken  the  opportunity 
of  thoroughly  revising  and  enlarging  it.

"  The  Life  of 
James  McNeill  Whistler"* 

If  the  beastly  words  "  Presentation 
Copy  "  had  not  been  stamped  into  the 
title  page  of  this  beautiful  book  we  should 
have  nothing  but  praise  for  it.  Here  is 
another  excellent  good  testimonial  to  a 
publisher.  After  giving  a  long  list  of 
people  to  whom  they  are  grateful  the 
authors  of  this  fascinating  biography  of 
Whistler  say  : — 

"  One  special  word  of  thanks, 
however,  we  must  add.  To  no  one 
do  we  owe  more  than  to  our  publisher, 
Mr.  William  Heinemann,  who  has 
drawn  upon  his  own  friendship  with 
Whistler  to  enrich  us,  who  has  aided 
us  with  his  counsel,  worked  with 
us  through  difficulties,  and  faced 
the  not  light  task  of  reading  our 
book  in  manuscript  and  proof, 
giving  us  the  advantage  of  his 
criticism  and  advice." 

These  testimonials  to  publishers 
are  highly  satisfactory,  and  we  like 
keeping  a  record  of  them.  Cicero 
says  —  we  take  it  on  trust  from 
some  book  we  were  reading  recently 
— that  all  men  by  a  certain  hidden 
faculty  approve  or  condemn  works 
of  art  or  letters.  What  Whistler's 
exact  position  will  be  in  fifty  years 
time  who  can  say  ?  but  it  is  quite 
certain  that  the  interest  of  this 
biography  is  greatly  due  to  the 
whole-hearted  manner  in  which  his 
biographers  speak  up  for  him.  Not 
Constable  or  even  Turner  had 
Whistler's  genius  for  English  land- 
scape, and  as  for  Rembrandt,  why 
Whistler  "  surpassed  Rembrandt  in 
Iris  own  (Dutch)  subjects."  It  is 
this  point  of  view,  Whistler  first 
and  the  rest  nowhere,  which  makes 
this  biography  so  interesting.  You 
must  like  what  Whistler  liked  if  he 
was  to  like  you.  Whistler  used  to 
make  buck-wheat  cakes.  He  never 
spoke  again  to  one  man  who 
ventured  to  dislike  them.  Whistler 
was  doubtless  a  great  artist  ;  he  was 
the  little  David  who  went  out  to 
slay  the  British  School  of  Art  Piiilis- 
tines  with  Ruskin  the  Goliath  at 
their  head,  and  the  tale  of  how 
he  slew  them  makes  excellent  reading  ; 
and  he  slew  them,  of  that  the  readtr  is 
not  left  hi  doubt  for  a  moment,  and  the 
proof — often  mentioned — is  that  aj"  Noc- 
turne," "knocked  off"  hi  a  day,  which 
he  sold  for  twenty  guineas  you  could  not 
now  buy  for  two  thousand.  For  a  long 
time  the  British  public  did  not  take  the 
American  artist  seriously — it  appears  to 
have  been  difficult  for  his  best  friends  to 
do  so — they  do  not  seem  quite  to  know 
whether  his  continual  contempt  and  dis- 
dain  for  tilings  English  was  real  or 
affected :  probably  it  was  a  mixture. 
It  seems  to  us  that  there  is  a  great  deal 
to  be  said  for  Whistler's  view  that  to  be  a 
competent  critic  of  painting  a  man  must 
be  able  to  paint ;  and  that  in  bringing  his 
action  against  Ruskin  he  was  fighting 
for  the  freedom  of  art — as  others  have

fought  for  the  freedom  of  letters.  To 
bring  out  "  harmonies  in  colours  "  may 
be  said  to  have  been  Whistler's  aim  in 
art — he  said  so  of  the  famous  "  Battersea 
Bridge  by  Moonlight,"  in  the  Ruskin 
trial,  the  "  Nocturne  in  Blue  and  Silver," 
No.  i.  It  is  for  this  reason  that  in  the 
great  profusion  of  black-and-white  re- 
productions in  these  fine  volumes,  those 
which  attract  most  and  appear  to  best 
represent  the  artist  are  his  portraits. 
Colour  was  not  to  be  thought  of,  and 
probably  many  of  these  reproductions  are 
given  mainly  as  identifying  records.  But 
the  portraits  are  often  wonderful,  es- 
pecially in  the  photogravures,  the  chief 
loss  being  in  the  effect  of  colour  on  the 
lips,  as  in  the  delicious  portrait  of  Miss 
Cicely  Alexander,  of  Mrs.  Huth,  Mrs. 
Ley  land,  &c,  in  which  the  lips  are  a  dark 
level  smudge  instead  of  transparent 
colour  as  in  the  original.  This  defect, 
due  to  the  mechanical  process,  is  more 
apparent  by  comparison  with  the  superb 
portrait  of  Lady  Archibald  Campbell, 
our  preference  in  the  whole  collection,  as 
is  the  portrait  of  Sarasate  among  the 
men  ;  these  two  being  originally  "  arrange- 
ments in  black  "  naturally  lend  them- 
selves better  to  black-and-white  repro- 
duction. A  characteristic  of  all  these 
reproductions  is  that  they  improve  under 
enlargement  and  seem  to  come  nearer 
to  the  original. 

To  Mr.  Heinemann,  of  course,  the 
production  of  this  work  has  been  a  real 
labour  of  love — from  every  point  of  view 
it  is  a  testimony  to  that  ;  ;  and  we  can 

assure  our  friends  the  booksellers  that  the 
first  edition-  of  this  book  is  going  to  be 
sought  after.  The  writers,  Joseph  Pen- 
nell  and  Elizabeth  Pennell,  have  suc- 
ceeded admirably  in  reproducing  the 
man  and  in  making  us  interested  hi  him 
and  his  life,  in  spite  of  his  porcupinish 
attitude  to  almost  everything  English  ; 
as  they  point  out  it  was  the  opposition  of 
the  England  of  his  day  to  him  which  made 
him — and  it  is  an  old  English  char- 
acteristic to  begin  by  laughing  at  a  man 
and  end  by  making  a  god  of  him.  To 
write  a  biography  of  Whistler,  the  master 
of  the  art  of  making  enemies,  so  soon  afte  r 
his  death,  must  have  "  given  to  think," 
as  the  French  say,  before  it  was  entered 
upon.  From  the  impartial  outsider's 
point  of  view  it  has  been  done  with 
great  good  taste  and  judgment ;  some 
who  are  not  in  a  position  to  be  im- 
partial will  naturally  not  agree  with 
this  view. 

Whistler  was  a  born  fighter,  and  those 
who  got  his  blows  are  not  likely  to  forget 
them — especially  when  repeated  in  this 
handsome  style.  Though  dead  he  yet 
hits — harder  than  ever.  And  yet  it  is 
impossible  to  read  this  book  without 
feeling  that  Whistler  was  what  his  fellow 
cadet  at  West  Point  Military  Academy, 
now  General  Loomis  L.  Langdon,  found 
him,  viz.  :  "a  most  genial  and  con- 
siderate friend,  an  honest  and  fascinating 
gentleman,  who  seemed  always  to  move 
in  a  sunny  atmosphere  that  brightened 
the  lives  of  his  friends  and  was  to  them 
like'  an  inspiration." 

The  Homes  and  Haunts  of 
Henry  Kirke  White 

Mr.  H.  B.  SaxTon,  of  King  Street,  Not- 
tingham, has  published*  at  5s.  net  an 
edition — limited  to  500  copies — of  a  very 
interesting  and  well  illustrated  work, 
entitled,  "The  Homes  and  Haunts  of 
Henry  Kirke  White,  with  some  Account  of 
the  Family  of  White  of  Nottingham  and 
Norfolk."  by  John  T.  Godfrey  and  James 
Ward.  The  volume  was  suggested  by 
the  Centenary  Banquet  to  the  Memory  of 
the  Poet  held  at  Nottingham  in  Novem- 
ber, 1906.  The  book  is  better  than  its 
title,  because,  in  addition  to  very  full 
and  well  arranged  details  respect  ing  the 
homes  and  haunts  of  the  poet,  there  is 
an  extremely  interesting  memoir  of 
White  constructed  chiefly  from  his  own 
letters,  with  regard  to  which  Sir  N. 
Harris  Nocolas  observes  : — "  So  fre- 
quently are  the  allusions  to  himself  hi 
those  letters  as  well  as  in  his  poems, 
that  he  may  be  almost  considered  as 
an  Autobiographer. "  What  is  actually 
new  in  the  book  is  mainly  connected 
with  the  history  of  the  White  family 
and  illustrations  of  places  he  lived 
at  or  which  were  well  known  to  him. 
We  are  sure  the  industry  and  devotion 
of  the  compilers  will  be  rewarded  by  the 
thanks  of  all  who  treasure  the  literary 
remains  and  sweet  memory  of  the  young 
poet  who  gave  such  promise  of  being  a 
great  one.    "  We  have  taken  this  pains,

British  Hunting 

It  is  proposed  to  make  this  a  comprehensive  history  of  hunting-,  and  one  of  the  most  elaborate  publications  ev  er  devoted 
to  any  single  branch  of  sport.  The  work  will  be  divided  into  three  sections — the  first  of  which  will  deal  with  the  historj 
of  hunting  generally — and  will  cover  all  the  ground  of  which  there  is  any  record  whatever  with  regard  to  hunts,  hunting 
men,  and  hunting  countries.  The  second  section  is  to  be  a  treatise  on  the  history  of  the  Hunts  of  Great  Britain  and 
Ireland  and  on  the  men  who  have  founded  and  have  maintained  them.  The  third  and  last  section  will  constitute  one  of 
the  principal  features  of  the  work,  containing  the  biographies  of  the  leading  Masters  and  Hunting  Men  in 
Great   Britain   and  Ireland 

Each  article  in  ihe  book  will  be  handsomely  illustrated  by  means  of  engravings  of  the  principal  packs  of  hounds.  These, 
with  portraits  of  the  Masters  and  Members  of  the  various  Hunts,  will  bring  the  number  of  illustrations  to  about  1,400, 
including  about  fifty  full-page  portraits  of  men  well  known  in  hunting  circles,  reproduced  by  means  of  the  finest 
photogravure  process  from  excellent  photographs.  The  articles  will  include  accounts  of  the  chase  of  the  Fox  and  Otter, 
Drag  Hunting,  Beagling,  Harriers,  Hounds  and  their  Breeding,  and  Hunters  and  their  Breeding;  descriptions  61 
remarkable  runs  in  the  history  of  hunting,  and  a  dissertation  on  hunting  equipment 

In  addition  to  all  these  features  it  will  contain  an  International  section,  including  a  description  of  hunting  and  hunting 
establishments  in  all  parts  of  the  world.    In  short,  no  effort  will  be  spared  to  make  this  book  the  standard  work  of 

reference  upon  all  matters  connected  with  the  chase

to  a  future  age  reminds  one  of  White's 
lines,  in  which  he  forestalled  Macaulay  : 

Britain  a  Thousand  Years  Hence. 

"  Where  now  is  Britain  ?     Where  her 
laurelled  names, 
Her  palaces  and  halls  ?    Dashed  to  the 


O'er  her  marts, 
Her  crowded  ports,  broods  Silence  ;  and 
the  cry 

Of  the  distant  curlew,  and  the  pensive 

Of  distant  billows,  breaks  alone  the  void. 
Even  as  the  savage  sits  upon  the  stone 
That  marks  where  stood  her  capitols, 

and  hears 
The  bittern  booming  in  the  weeds,  he 


From   the   dismaying   solitude.  Her 

Sing  in  a  language  that  hath  perished  ; 
And  their  wild  harps,  suspended  o'er 

their  graves, 
Sing  to  the  desert  winds  a  dying  strain." 

This  little  book  cannot  fail  to  call 
attention  to  a  singularly  interesting  per- 

"Discovery"  of  the  Author 
of  "The  Burial  of  Sir 
John  Moore  " 

From  the  well-known  bookseller,  Mr.  T. 
Thatcher,  College  Green,  Bristol,  we  have 
received  "  The  Writer  of  '  The  Burial  of 
Sir  John  Moore,'  '  Discovered,'  "  by  R. 
C.  Newick  ( is. ).  "  The  history  of  literary 
imposture  starts,  perhaps,  from  Terence," 
says  Mr.  Newick,  who,  in  this  amusing 
little  skit  makes  a  very  good  bid  to  be 
himself  included  in  the  history  of 
impostors.  He  pretends  to  have  dis- 
covered that  it  was  a  Corporal  Joseph 
Wolfe,  who  fought  under  Moore  and 
assisted  in  burying  him,  who  wrote  the 
imperishable  poem. 

He  says  Charles  Wolfe  was  no  poet, 
and  gives  the  following  as  a  specimen  of 
his  verse  to  prove  it : 

*'  England,  what  !  ho  !   as  thus  the  spectre 

All  Lisbon's  turrets  to  their  bases  shook  : 
He  spoke,  then  plunged  into  the  river's 

And  Tagus  wrapped  him  in  his  billowy 

Mr.  Newick  cries  Wolfe  too  often,  for 
in  the  next  paragraph  he  claims  that  his 
Joseph  Wolfe  also  wrote  the  poem  : 
"  If  I  had  thought  thou  could'st  have  died." 

Referring  to  the  metre  of  the 
"  Burial,"  he  quotes  The  Athenceum  as 
saying  : 

"  If  the  metrical  movement  of  Wolfe's 
poem  had  only  been  as  much  his  own  as 
the  sentiments,  thoughts  and  emotions, 
we  must,  perhaps,  have  placed  it  at  the 
head  of  all  English  elegies.    Yet  in  an 

elegy  the  metrical  music  must  be  orighial 
if  the  poem  is  to  claim  transcendent 
excellence."  He  adds  that  The  Athenceum 
then  states  that  Wolfe  copied  his  metre 
from  Tom  Moore's 

"  Oh  !   make  her  a  grave  where  the  sunny 
beams  rest 
When  they  promise  a  glorious  to-morrow. 
They'll  shine  o'er  her  sleep  like  a  smile 
from  the  West, 
Prom  her  own  loved  Island  of  Sorrow." 

Mr.  Newick  proceeds  : — "  But  there  is 
a  much  older  example  of  the  same  metre 
quoted  in  Hutchinson's  Fugitive  Poetry, 
(Chandos  Classics),  and  dated  1630  "  : 

Burial  of  a  Pilgrim  Father  in  America. 

"  We  anxiously  hollowed  the  frozen  ground, 
And  heaped  up  the  lonely  furrow  ; 
For  the  Indian  lurked  in  the  woods  around, 
And  we  feared  his  whistling  arrow. 

When  the  surf  on  the  seabeaeh  heavily 

When    the    breeze    in    the  wilderness 
muttered  ; 
We  deemed  it  the  coming  of  hostile  feet, 
Or  the  watchword  cautiously  uttered." 

The  third  verse  is  not  so  good,  but  for 
an  early  seventeenth  century  poem  these 
alone  are  worth  the  modest  shilling 
asked  for  the  book.  The  last  fifty  pages 
pretend  to  be  extracts  from  the  Memoirs 
of  Sergeant  Paul  Swanston,  published  by 
B.  D.  Cousins,  18,  Duke  Street,  Lincoln's 
Inn,  in  monthly  parts,  60  or  70  years 
ago.  Here,  agam,  these  extracts  are 
worth  the  money,  and  make  one  wish 
that  the  imaginary  memoirs  really  existed, 
so  admirably  done  are  descriptions  of 
incidents  in  Moore's  retreat  when,  like  a 
wounded  tiger,  he  kept  the  French  at  bay. 

It  is  an  excellent  bit  of  literary 
fooling,  well  worth  reading  from  begin- 
ning to  end. 

"  Books  which  will  Interest 
all  Scotsmen  " 

The  Edinburgh  Evening  Dispatch  says  : — 
"  A  book  which  should  prove  interesting 
to  all  the  world,  but  most  of  all  to  Scots- 
men, is  announced  by  Mr.  T.  N.  Foulis, 
and  is  from  the  pen  of  Mr.  W.  S.  Crockett, 
not  the  Mr.  Crockett  who  has  written  an 
appalling  series  of  stories  and  is  still 
going  strong,  but  another  minister,  of 
Tweedside,  who  joins  a  love  for  the  saving 
of  souls  to  a  love  of  literature.  The  book 
is  to  contain  an  account  of  the  originals 
of  the  characters  of  the  Waverley  Novels, 
and  the  making  of  it  is  a  task  which  should 
entail  no  small  research,  and  perhaps  a 
considerable  element  of  speculation. 
Another  volume  from  the  same  publisher, 
with  an  equally  Scottish  flavour,  is  an 
edition  with  coloured  illustrations  of  Dean 
Ramsay's  immortal  '  Reminiscences.'  The 
artist  is  Mr.  Henry  W.  Kerr. ' ' 

A  great  many  others  besides  Scotsmen 
will  be  delighted  with  Mr.  Foulis's 
admirable  edition  of  the  famous  "  Re- 
miniscences " — which  upset  the  erroneous 
idea  that  Scotsmen  cannot  see  a  joke. 
The  sixteen  separately  mounted  illus- 
trations are  really  fine  reproductions  in 
colour  of  paintings  by  Mr.  H.  W.  Kerr, 
A.R.S.A.  A  good  Index  and  attractive 
binding  make  us  again  thank  Mr.  Foulis 
for  this  very  desirable  edition  of  an  old 

Milton  and  Elzevier 

There  is  an  interesting  new  note  about 
Milton  in  M.  M.  Kleerkooper's  letter  hi 
The  Athenceum  of  December  19th.  It 
gives  a  copy  of  a  letter  from  Sir  Joseph 
Williamson  (Charles  II. 's  principal  Minis- 
ter of  State)  to  Roger  Meredith  (Secretary 
to  the  English  Embassy  at  The  Hague), 
which  begins  thus  : — 

"  His  Majesty  is  informed  of  a  perni- 
cious book  of  that  late  villain  Milton's 
now  about  to  be  printed  at  Leyden.  I  am 
commanded  to  signify  to  you  that  you 
immediately  apply  yourself  to  find  out, 
by  the  best  means  you  may,  if  there  be 
any  such  who  is  the  prhiter,  and  by 
what  order  he  is  set  on  work."  Suspicion 
is  thrown  in  the  letter  on  Skinner,  a 
young  scholar  of  Cambridge. 

There  can  be  no  doubt  Skinner  had 
sent  some  manuscript  to  the  celebrated 
prhiter  and  publisher,  Daniel  Elzevier, 
for  Mr.  Kleerkooper  has  discovered  a  letter 
from  Daniel  Elzevier  to  ' '  Mr.  Skinner, 
marchand,  at  his  house  in  Cruchet 
Frijers  at  London,"  the  father  of  Milton's 
young  friend.  In  this  letter,  written 
evidently  in  consequence  of  the  search 
set  on  foot  by  Charles,  he  says  he  is 
returning  Milton's  manuscripts  of  his 
works  "  on  Theology  and  his  Epistles," 
and  begs  him  to  assure  the  English 
Minister  that  "  of  the  works  of  Milton 
which  have  been  in  my  hands  never  an 
iota  has  been  printed,  and  that  I  have 
sent  them  back  as  I  received  them." 

But  the  work  the  King  wished  to 
seize,  either  in  the  MS.  or  in  the  impres- 
sion, was  Milton's  State  Letters,  published 
surreptitiously  about  tliis  time  without 
indication  of  printer  or  place.  Daniel 
Elzevier 's  denial  of  any  connection  with 
the  publication  is  explicit  enough,  but  it 
does  not  satisfy  Mr.  Kleerkooper,  who 
says : — 

"  Whether  Elzevier  did  not  have  a 
hand  in  the  production  of  the  clandestine 
edition  we  may  at  least  be  permitted  to 
doubt.  At  any  rate,  he  took  good  care 
not  to  return  the  manuscripts  before  the 
book  had  gone  forth." 

If  the  "  famous  Amsterdam  publisher  " 
lied,  it  was  to  save  his  English  friend  ; 
but  there  is  no  evidence  to  prove  that  he 
did,  or  that  he  had  the  incriminating 
manuscript  of  the  "  villain  Milton." 

The  New  Literary  Year 

A  capital  handbook  is  "  The  Liter ary 
Year  Book,"  the  thirteenth  annual  issue 
of  which  has  just  been  published  by 
Messrs.  George  Routledge  &  Sons.  In 
the  autumn  a  French  publisher,  who  was 
over  here  for  the  Franco-British  Exhibi- 
tion, called  on  us  to  get  some  information, 
and  under  promise  to  return  it  in  a  day 
or  two,  he  walked  off  with  our  copy  of  the 
1908  Literary  Year  Book.  We  should  not 
like  to  say  how  many  times  since  we  have 
searched  in  vain  for  the  work,  until 
remembering  our  French  visitor.  We 
find  it  indispensable,  and  it  is  a  mine  of 
most  valuable  information  for  all  con- 
nected with  the  writing  and  publishing 
of  books.  Each  year  sees  the  addition  of 
some  new  feature.

Publishers'  Circular 


"George  Borrow,  the  Man 
and  his  Work  " 

(Cassell  &  Co.,  Ltd.) 

"  George  Borrow,  The  Man  and  his 
Work,"   by   R.   A.   J.    Walling,  with 
portrait  and  facsimiles  of  Borrow's  MS. 
Mr.  Walling,  who  dates  his  Preface  from 
Plymouth,  tells  us  that  "  An  inquiry  into 
the  Cornish  origin  of  the  Borrow  family, 
into  the  circumstances  of  Borrow's  visit 
to  the  home  of  his  forebears,  and  of  his 
tour  in  Cornwall,  was  responsible  for  the 
inception  of  the  present  book."    We  are 
glad  that  anything  led  to  the  inception 
of  the  work,  for  it  is  ati  admirable  bit  of 
biography — interesting  from  the  first  page 
to  the  last.    "  The  Bible  in  Spain,"  the 
work   which  made   Borrow   famous,  is 
described  by  himself  in  a  letter  to  Richard 
Ford  as  "a  rum,  very  rum,  mixture  of 
gipsyism,  Judaism,  and  Missionary  ad- 
venture," and  he  adds  "  I  have  no  doubt 
it  will  be  greedily  read."    Borrow  himself 
was  a  rum.  very  rum  mixture — a  born 
pugilist,  a  lover  of  horses  and  all  animals, 
a  gipsy  by  predilection,  a  Missionary  by 
accident,  a  wanderer,  linguist,  delightful 
writer,  a  good  hater,  a  good  lover :  a 
wild  son  of  Nature  reflecting  all  her  moods 
ha  his  disposition — "  wild  and  fierce  when 
Nature  was  wild  and  fierce,  gentle  and 
sunny  amid  fair  meads  in  fine  weather." 
When  living  at  Oulton  he  tells  us  that  he 
spent  most  of  his  time  riding  his  favourite 
Arab  horse,  Sidi  Habismilk  "  over  heaths 
and  through  the  green  lanes,"  or  staying 
at  home  and  fishing  for  big  pike.  That 
much  of  Borrow's  success  was  due  to  the 
encouragement  of  his  publisher,  John 
Murray,   "  Glorious  John  "  as  he  calls 
him,  is  certain.    In  spite  of  occasional 
difficulties  he  held  Mr.  Murray  in  unfailing 
honour,  and  was  proud  to  have  his  work 
sealed   with    the    cachet   of  Albemarle 
Street.    The    charm   of   Mr.  Walling's 
book  is  that  it  gives  such  an  insight  into 
the  character  of  an  extraordinary  and, 
in   many   ways,  fascinating,  man.  His 
thirty  years  of  married  life  is  one  of  the 
romances  of  literature.  At  his  wife's  death 
his  grief  was  terrible.    "  He  had  lost  her 
who  had  been  in  literal  fact  his  better 
half,  who  had  inspired  his  courage  and 
fought  his  '  Horrors  '  for  him,  had  organ- 
ised his  business,  and  been  his  wife  and 
friend,  counsellor  mid  physician,  aman- 
uensis and  private  secretary."

For  the  Friend  of  British 

Miss  Agnes  E.  Weston,  founder  and 
manager  of  the  Royal  .Sailors'  Rest, 
Portsmouth,  has  received  the  following 
gracious  letter  from  His  Majesty  the 
King  :— 

"  Sandringham, 

"  December  23rd,  1908. 
"  Dear  Madam, — I  write  by  com- 
mand of  the  King  to  send  you  His 
Majesty's  best  thanks  for  your  letter, 
and  for  the  report  and  copy  of  your 
book  which  accompanied  it. 

"  The  King  further  commands  me  to 
say  that  nobody  is  better  aware  of,  or 
more  thoroughly  appreciates,  the  great 
work  you  have  done  for  the  British 
sailors,  and  for  their  wives  and  children 
also,  than  His  Majesty  is,  and  he  thanks 
you  sincerely  for  the  same. 

"  I  am,  by  the  King's  command, 
sending  you  a  signed  photograph  of 
His  Majesty,  which  he  wishes  you  to 

accept  as  a  small  token  of  his  gratitude 
to  you  for  your  noble  services.  I  am 
to  add  at  the  same  time  His  Majesty's 
fervent  hope  that  you  may  yet  be  long 
spared  to  your  country  to  carry  out  the 
great  work  to  which  you  have  given  so 
many  years  of  your  life. — I  remain, 
dear  madam,  yours  faithfully, 

"  D.  M.  Probyn  (General), 

"  Keeper  of  His  Majesty's 
Privy  Purse." 

Lecture  by  a  Well -known 

IT  will  interest  the  booksellers  of  the 
North  of  England  to  know  that  the 
Geographical  Society  of  Manchester  has 
asked  Mr,  Harold  E.  Young,  of  Messrs. 
Henry  Young  &  Sons,  of  Liverpool,  to 
lecture  for  its  members  on  January  12th 
next.  The  subject  of  the  lecture  will  be 
"  A  Wayfarer  in  Rural  Japan."  Mr. 
Yoimg  walked  through  Japan  just  after 
the  great  war.  The  lecture  will  be 
illustrated  with  original  lantern  slides, 

and  will  show  an  aspect  of  Japanese  life 
which  has  probably  not  been  noticed 
before  in  England.  The  Geographical 
Society  has  also  requested  Mr.  Young  to 
lecture  again  at  a  later  date  in  the  year  on 
"  Rambles  and  Scrambles  on  the  Pacific- 
Slope,  and  in  the  Yellow-Stone  Regions 
of  the  Far  West."  The  fees  which  Mr. 
Young  will  receive  will  be  handed  over 
to  a  charity.  As  Mr.  Young  is  the 
President  of  the  Northern  Branch  of  the 
Associated  Booksellers  of  Great  Britain 
and  Ireland  this  year  we  feel  sure  many 
of  our  friends  in  the  North  will  be  glad 
to  hear  the  lecture  ;  and  those  in  the 
South  also  if  Mr.  Young  will  favour  us 
some  day. 

Britain's  Position  in 

Writing  in  Travel  and  Exploration,  the 
new  illustrated  monthly  magazine  devoted 
to  travel  in  all  its  aspects,  Mr.  H.  Massac 
Buist  seeks  to  answer  the  question  why 
Britain,  except  in  books  of  adventure  for 
boys,  has  lagged  in  aeroplane  achieve- 
ments. So  far,  he  points  out,  nobody  has 
made  in  this  country  a  free  dynamic 
flight  with  a  voluntary  conclusion.  The 
reason  for  this,  he  contends,  is  not  that 
we  lack  the  enterprise,  but  the  conditions 
are  vastly  more  difficult  in  this  country 
than  they  are  on  the  Continent.  Where 
the  brothers  Wright  conducted  their 
experiments  for  months  together  they 
could  rely  on  a  steady  thirty-mile-an-hour 
wind  from  off  the  sea.  That  enormously 
simplified  the  problem  of  maintaining 
equilibrium.  If  you  went  across  to 
France  to  see  Mr.  Wilbur  Wright  practise, 
despite  fruitful  years  of  experience  and 
the  perfecting  of  his  apparatus,  you  found 
him  greatly  dependent  on  the  changing 
weather,  an  added  complication  being  the 
problem  of  the  motor.  We  must  not  be 
over  impatient  in  this  country.  Progress 
is  being  made  extraordinarily  quickly,  as 
achievements  here  within  the  next  twelve 
months  will  duly  inform  the  public.

Writing  from  his  house  in  Queen  Ann

February  8th,  1790,  Boswell  says  : —

two  quarto  volumes,  and  two  quarto 
volumes  for  one  Life  would  have  been 
exorbitant,  though  in  truth  it  is  a  view

The  Land  of  Opportunity 

Thousands  of  sturdy  British  emigrants  go 
to  the  Dominion  annually  and  settle  there. 
To-day  there  is  a  large  population  in  Canada 
interested  in  British  books  and  periodicals 
and  affording  a  splendid  market  for  British 

The  only  feasible  way  to  preserve  the 
interest  of  these  people,  in  face  of  the  com- 
petition of  American  publishers,  is  to  have 
Canadian  booksellers  and  newsagents  show 
British  books  and  periodicals  on  their  counters 
and  in  their  windows  constantly  and  press  the 
sale  of  them. 

The  best  method  of  urging  Canadian 
booksellers  and  newsagents  to  stock  and  sell 
British  publications  is  to  make  use  of  the 
trade  organ  to  which  they  subscribe  regularly. 

Information  as  to  the  Canadian  Market  will  be  gladly  supplied  by

and  so  finds  the  number  of  words.  Mine

frighten  you  ?  By  printing  a  page  the

Our  Copyright 
Arrangement  with  the 
United  States 

Mr.  T.  T.  Hodgson,  in  the  interests  of 
the  printing  trade  of  this  country,  has 
again  written  to  The  Times  suggesting 
that,  as  the  Americans  give  us  copyright 
only  on  condition  that  the  work  is  set  up 
and  printed  hi  the  United  States,  we 
should  insert  hi  our  own  copyright  law  a 
provision  by  which  to  get  copyright  here 
original  works  in  English  must  be  set  up 
and  printed  here. 

This  is  all  right  from  the  printer's 
point  of  view,  but  its  probable  effect 
would  be  the  abrogation  by  the  Americans 
of  the  half-hearted  kind  of  copyright  our 
authors  now  enjoy,  because  it  would 
mean  that  no  American  could  get  copy- 
right here  unless  his  work  was  set  up  and 
printed  here.  There  is  a  strong  move- 
ment in  America  in  favour  of  the  abolition 
of  the  manufacturing  clause,  and  we  feel 
convinced  that  in  the  interests  of  all 
holders  of  copyright  in  this  country — i.e., 
authors  ami  publishers,  it  would  be  un- 
wise to  adopt  retaliatory  measures  to- 
wards the  United  States.  It  is  probable 
that  America  will  before  long  join  the 
other  cliief  nations  in  supporting  the 
Berne  Convention.

Dear  Sir, — With  reference  to  Mr.  Arnould 
Galopin's  letter  of  December  15th,  I  can 
only  repeat  that  he  is  not  the  author 
of  "  The  King  Who  Never  Reigned," 
and  his  own  statements  substantiate  my

The    Publishers'  Circular 


It  can  thus  be  seen  that  so  far  from 
M.  Galopin  being,  as  he  declares,  the  author 
of  the  work,  he  has  merely  supplied  an 
introduction  and  notes  in  conjunction 
with  M.  Maurice  Yitrac.  In  his  adver- 
tisement in  the  Christmas  Publishers' 
Circular  he  makes  no  mention  of 
Eckard  and  Naundorff,  and  he  also  sup- 
presses the  name  of  his  collaborator, 
although  it  appears  first  on  the  title-page 
of  the  book. 

When  I  decided  to  bring  out  a  com- 
plete work  on  the  mystery  of  Louis  XVII. 
I  arranged  to  reprint  the  famous  Memoirs 
of  Eckard  and  Naundorff,  but  hi  view  of 
the  fact  that  they  were  published  many 
years  ago  I  considered  it  would  improve 
the  value  of  the  work  if  I  included  M. 
Joseph  Turquan's  "  New  Light  on  the 
Fate  of  Louis  XVII.,"  as  it  was  the  latest 
important  work  on  the  subject,  and  I  was 
fortimate  in  securing  the  British  rights. 
As  the  volume  contained  three  separate  I 
books,  with  different  titles,  I  gave  it — for 
business  reasons — the  general  title,  "  The 
King  Who  Never  Reigned,"  and  I  added 
a  sub-title,  which  fully  explained  the 
nature  of  the  contents. 

In  his  advertisement  in  The  Pub- 
lishers' Circular  M.  Galopin  used  my 
general  title  only,  and  disregarded  the 
sub-title,  an  action  which  requires  some 
explanation.  It  was  quite  unnecessary 
for  me  to  consult  him  on  the  question  of 
the  title,  as  all  my  dealings  were  with  the 
French  publisher,  to  whom  I  paid  a  sum 
for  the  right  to  reprint,  in  whatever 
manner  I  chose,  his  edition  of  the  Memoirs 
of  Eckard  and  Naundorff,  with  any 
copyright  notes  or  matter. — Yours  faith-

,    "  BOOKvS    OF    THE    CHURCH  " 

Dear  Sir, — I  have  published  to-day  the 
second  volume  of  the  "  Books  of  the 
Chinch  "  series,  by  Dr.  Clement  B. 
Gunn.  This  volume,  which  follows  the 
"  Book  of  Stobo  Church,"  is  entitled 
"  The  Book  of  Peebles  Church,"  and 
deals  with  the  mediaeval  period  depicting 
life  hi  a  country  town  during  the  Romish 
phase  of  the  Church  of  Scotland  from  the 
beginning  to  its  close. 

The  book  is  well  illustrated,  and  has 
as  frontispiece  the  rare  charter  in  the 
vernacular  of  1434,  engraved  from  the 
original  hi  possession  of  Sir  T.  D.  Gibson- 
Carmiehael.  The  edition  is  limited  to 
200  copies  at  10s.  6d.  each. 

I  trust  you  will  notice  the  publication, 
as  you  kindly  did  the  first  volume,  in  The 
Publishers'  Circular.  Thanking  you 
in  anticipation. — I  am,  yours  faithfully, 

John  A.  Anderson.

Notices  of  Books 

Prom  Messrs.  Allman  &  Son. — "  The  Voice 
and  Its  Control,"  by  Churchill  Sibley. 
This  little  book  is  intended  primarily  for 
the  singer  and  public  speaker,  but  those 
who  have  noticed  how  comparatively  rare 
is  a  melodious  voice  may  be  forgiven  for 
expressing  the  hope  that  the  general 
public  will  not  entirely  ignore  it.  Let  the 
clergy  especially  note  the  remarks  upon 
page  84.  In  less  than  a  hundred  pages  the 
author  gives  the  A  B  C  of  the  physiology 
of  the  vocal  organs,  breathing,  tone, 
resonance,  registers,  enunciation  and  the 
general  care  of  the  voice.  A  thoroughly 
practical  and  sensible  little  handbook. 

From  Messrs.  Blackie  &  Son,  Ltd.— "Christ - 
abel,"  by  Mrs.  Albert  G.  Latham,  is  a 
story  of  the  freaks  and  fancies  of  three 
little  folk.  Their  adventures,  charmingly 
illustrated  by  Paul  Hardy,  will  give 
pleasure  to  many  young  children,  besides 
those  for  whom  the  tale  was  written. 

From  The  Cambridge  University  Press. — 

"  The  Sermons  of  Henry  Smith,"  a 
selection  edited  by  Dr.  John  Brown. 
Henry  Smith  was  a  Puritan  divine  of  the 
time  of  Queen  Elizabeth.  He  was  com- 
monly known  as  the  "  silver-tongued 
preacher,"  and  Fuller  tells  us  that  his 
church  was  always  crowded  with  auditors, 
whose  "  ears  did  so  attend  to  his  lips, 
their  hearts  to  their  ears,  that  he  held  the 
rudder  of  their  affections  in  his  hands,  so 
that  he  could  steer  them  whither  be  was 
pleased."  Nor  did  his  reputation  quickly 
fade  ;  for  within  forty  years  of  his  death 
no  less  than  seventeen  editions  of  bis 
sermons  were  published.  The  Cambridge 
Press  have  done  well  to  re-issue  a  selection 
from  them,  in  a  bandy  little  pocket  volume, 
for  both  in  matter  and  manner  these 
discourses  contain  much  that  is  by  no 
means  out  of  date. 

From  The  Catholic  Truth  Society. — "  The 

Greek  Fathers,"  by  Adrian  Fortescue, 
consists  of  carefully  written  biographies 
of  those  seven  great  leaders  of  the  Eastern 
Church  between  300  and  800  a.d.  whose 
writings  have  come  down  to  us.  Mr.  Fortes- 
cue  has  gone  back  to  the  original  authorities 
for  his  facts  and  his  work  is  a  model  of 
condensation  and  completeness.  It  is 
published  under  the  official  imprimatur  of 
the  Roman  Church,  and  is  written,  there- 
fore, from  the  Roman  point  of  view. 
Allowing  for  this,  the  work  is  commendably 
free  from  unfairness  and  narrowness,  and 
may  not  improbably  become  a  standard 
handbook  on  its  subject. 

From  the  Same. — "  Our  Faith,"  by  Cecil 
Lylburn.  This  little  book  explains  in 
clear,  straightforward  language  the  Catholic 
doctrines  of  the  Church,  Infallibility,  Man 
and Transubstantiation,  Confession,  Eternal 
Punishment,  the  Communion  of  Saints, 
&c.  Nobody  who  studies  this  explanation 
with  care  can  fail  to  understand  the  reasons 
given  for  teaching  and  believing  these 
doctrines  of  the  Church  of  Rome.  The 
references  to  Scripture  are  very  telling. 

From  Messrs.  T.  &  T.  Clark.—"  The  Greek 
and  Eastern  Churches,"  by  the  Rev. 
W.  F.  Adeny,  D.D.  Dr.  Adeuey  is  well- 
known  as  the  Principal  of  Lancashire 
College,  Manchester,  and  a  theologian  of 
distinction.  His  present  work  is  an 
important  contribution  to  Church  History. 
The  book  is  divided  into  two  parts,  in  the 
first  of  which  is  traced  the  history  of  the 
main  body  of  the  Church  throughout  the 
Eastern  provinces  of  Christendom,  until 
by  losing  one  limb  after  another  it  became 
more  and  more  limited  in  area,  though 
still  claiming  to  be  the  one  orthodox 
Church.    In  the  second  part  is  sketched 

the  history  of  each  of  the  separated 
Churches,  Russian,  Syrian,  Coptic,  &c, 
as  well  as  of  the  modern  Greek  Church. 
Dr.  Adeney  writes  with  thoroughness, 
learning,  and  impartiality,  not  failing 
to  do  justice  to  the  merits  as  well  as 
pointing  out  the  defects  of  the  various 
bodies  of  Christians,  "  who  in  their  own 
day  mutually  anathematised  each  other." 
At  the  head  of  each  chapter  is  placed  a  list 
of  original  authorities,  and  there  is  a 
sufficient  though  not  copious  index. 

From  Messrs.  A.  Constable  &  Co.,  Ltd. — 

"The  Arabian  Nights"  with  about  130 
illustrations  by  W.  Heath  Robinson,  Helen 
Stratton,  and  others.  Nothing  need  be 
said  about  the  "  Arabian  Nights,"  the 
tales  are  too  well-known,  but  the  illustra- 
tions in  this  edition  are  decidedly  clever 
and  greatly  add  to  the  value  of  the  book. 
There  is  a  pretty  illuminated  frontispiece 
and  title-page,  and  the  book  is  bound  i 
cloth  with  coloured  design. 

From  the  Same. — "  First  and  Last  Things," 
by  H.  G.  Wells.  The  impression  of 
thinking  aloud  is  very  strong  in  this 
"  Confession  of  Faith  and  Rule  of  Life." 
Mr.  Wells  wants  to  tell  us  what  he  thinks 
on  many  subjects — on  Religion,  on  War, 
on  Love — and  he  accomplishes  his  end  by- 
describing  the  processes  of  thought  which 
lead  him  to  certain  conclusions.  The 
charm  of  the  book  lies  in  its  simple,  almost 
naive  diction,  and  its  strength  is  derived 
from  its  obvious  honesty  and  sincerity. 
It  exposes  many  fallacies,  and  stands  as  an 
example  of  clear  thinking  and  right  feeling. 

From  the  Same. — "  Patricia  Baring,"  by 
Winifred  James.  Patricia  begins  to  keep 
a  diary  at  the  age  of  nine,  and  for  the  first 
few  months  it  is  full  of  the  mingled  humour 
and  pathos  that  is  so  characteristic  of  highly 
intelligent  and  self-analytical  children. 
Patricia  is  honest,  unconventional,  full  of 
life,  and  passionately  sincere  and  generous  ; 
consequently,  she  comes  into  conflict  with 
people  and  conventions,  and  as  she  is 
sensitive  and  highly-strung  she  is  made 
to  suffer  keenly.  Ten  or  a  dozen  years 
of  her  life  are  passed  in  review  before 
the  reader's  gaze,  and  her  feelings  and 
aspirations  are  described  with  no  little 
vigour  and  depth  of  understanding.  As 
a  revelation  of  the  nature  of  a  young  child 
blossoming  into  girlhood  and  womanhood 
the  book  has  unusual  merit. 

From  The  De  La  More  Press  we  have  received 
three  more  of  their  neat  booklets  in  a  con- 
venient case:  "The  Dream  of  Gerontics." 
by  Cardinal  Newman  ;  "  The  Blessed  Damo- 
zel,"  by  D.  G.  Rossetti  ;  and  Coleridge's 
"  Christabel,"  they  make  a  charming  trinity 
in  unity.  The  same  firm  also  send  a  pocket 
reprint  of  the  Rubaiyat  of  Omar  Khayyam 
(FitzGerald's  first  translation)  in  paper 
covers,  with  outline  illustrations  hi  red 
and  green  by  Miss  Blanche  McManus. 

From  the  Same  comes  also  a  small 
volume  in  vellum  wrapper:  "The 
Young  Gardener's  Year,"  by  Miss  Dollie 
Radford.  It  contains  a  short  poem  for 
each  month  of  the  year,  giving  in  pleasant 
verse  simple  information  as  to  the  flowers 
in  season  and  the  cultural  duties  of  the 
month,  with  illustrations  by  L.  E.  Wright. 
It  would  make  a  pretty  little  gift  book  for 
a  garden-loving  child. 

From  Messrs.  J.  M.  Dent  &  Co — "The 
Lawrences  of  the  Punjab,"  by  Frederick 
P.  Gibbon,  author  of  "  The  Record  of  the 
Sikhs"  "The  Gurkha  Scouts,"  &c.  We 
have  every  praise  for  this  balanced  and 
well-written  account  of  the  persons  and 
work  of  the  Lawrences.  It  is  needless  to 
recapitulate  what  is  so  well-known,  but 
we  are  convinced  that  this  book  will  be 
widely  read,  especially  as  it  is  included  in 
the  excellent  "  Temple  "  Biographies.  We

From  Mr.  T.  N.  Foulis.— "  Rab  and  His 

Friends,"  by  John  Brown,  M.D.  A  new 
edition  of  an  ever-popular  work,  remark- 
able not  only  for  the  exquisite  illustrations, 
which  are  from  water-colour  drawings  by  j 
Miss  Preston  Macgoun,  but  from  the  fact 
that  the  story  of  Rab's  earlier  days,  taken 
from  the  essay  "  Our  Dogs "  in  Horce 
Subsecivte,  is  included  in  the  book.  None 
will  regret  to  see  this  earlier  narrative, 
which  forms  a  natural  introduction  to  the 
latef  one,  set  beside  it.  The  type  and 
general  get-up  of  the  little  volume  call  for 
a  word  of  praise. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Immortal  Hour  :  j 
a  Drama  in  Two  Acts,"  by  Fiona  Macleod.  , 
A  drama  in  blank  verse  founded  upon  the  | 
ancient  Celtic  legend  of  Medir  and  Etain —  1 
a  Gaelic  Orpheus  and  Eurydice.    In  Etain, 
the  author  would  convey  "  a  symbol  of 
the  wayward  but  home-wandering  soul, 
and  in  Medir  a  symbol  of  the  Spirit."  The 
blank  verse  is  of  good  quality,  and  some 
of  the  Chants  interspersed  rise  to  a  high 
level  of  wild  melody.

"  Encyclopaedia  of  Agriculture,"  Vol.  3.  j 
The  third  and  last  volume  of  this  most 
comprehensive  Encyclopaedia  embraces 
articles  from  Kainit  to  Zalkova.  We  have 
on  previous  occasions  spoken  of  this  work 
in  high  terms  of  praise,  and  the  concluding 
volume  is  in  no  sense  inferior  to  its  pre-  j 
decessors  ;  the  mimerous  illustrations  are  j 
very  well  reproduced,  and  will  be  found  of 
the  greatest  service.  Among  the  most 
important  articles  we  note  the  following  : — ■ 
"  Parasites,"  by  Professor  Penberthy  ; 
"  Pigs,"  hy  Professor  Maiden  ;  "  Sanita-

"  Patcola  :  A  Tale  of  a  Dead  City,"  by  j 
Ena  Fitzgerald.  Miss  Fitzgerald  has 
chosen  a  difficult  theme  for  her  first  novel. 
The  city  of  Vijayanagar  was  founded  in  J 
the  first  half  of  the  fourteenth  century, 
when  the  Mohammedans  were  attempting 
to.  conquer  India.  Of  all  its  monarchs 
Krishna  Deva  Raya  was  perhaps  the  most 
remarkable,  and  the  author  has  been  wise 
in  fixing  upon  the  days  of  his  rule  as  the 
time  of  her  story.  The  tale  was  told  to  a 
young  Englishman  three  hundred  years 
ago  by  an  ancient  hermit  in  India.  It  has 
plenty  of  Eastern  colour  and  glamour, 
and  the  incident  is  abundant. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Hoverers,"  by 
Lucas  Cleeve.  The  Hoverers  are  the  idle 
ones,  those  who  have  little  or  no  aim  in 
life  and  are  disappointed  with  their  past. 
Lucas  Cleeve's  book  is  full  of  them,  and 
two  at  least  are  anxious  "  to  get  out  of  it." 
The  story  is  well  told,  and  the  character  ; 
drawing  is  excellent. 

From  TheGresham  Publishing  Co. — "  Science  :

From  Mr.  William  Heinemann. — "  Dan  to 

Beersheba,"  by  Archibald  Colquhoun. 
A  book  of  travel  and  exploration,  and  there 
are  many  such,  is  somewhat  a  dangerous 
experiment  :  for  nothing  is  more  calculated 
to  tire  a  reader  than  ill-told  adventures  ; 
but  in  Mr.  Colquhoun's  book  the  reader 
will  find  nothing  to  bore  him,  for  the 
author,  partly  due  to  lis  journalistic  past, 
and  partly  to  his  energetic  mind,  knows 
how  to  sustain  interest  throughout.  He 
takes  as  his  motto  Sterne's  remark  : 
"  I  pity  the  man  who  can  travel  from 
Dan  to  Beersheba  and  cry  '  'tis  all  barren  '  ; 
and  so  it  is,  and  so  is  all  the  world  to  him 
who  Will  not  cultivate  the  fruits  it  offers." 
Certainly  Sterne  would  have  found  no 
reason  to  pity  Mr.  Colquhoun  ;  and  after 
reading  his  book  one  feels  a  little  less 
ignorant,  and  a  little  more  travelled. 

From  Messrs.  Hodder  &  Stoughton.  A 

Short  Historv  of  Social  Life  in  England," 
by  M.  B.  Synge,  F.R.Hist.S.  It  is  with 
good  heart  that  we  draw  attention  to  this 
work,  for  we  know  that  there  are  few- 
things  better  for  the  modern  man  than  a 
knowledge  of  his  ancestors  and  the  circum- 
stances of  their  lives.  It  is  so  easy  to 
forget  the  debt  we  owe  to  the  past,  so 
hard  to  remember  our  duty  to  the  future  ; 
and  we  think  that  this  book,  dealing  as  it 
does  with  the  more  material  side  of  life, 
will  do  something  to  awaken  the  national 
conscience.  It  is  a  great  thing  to  remember 
that  the  personages  of  our  history,  the 
makers  of  the  character  of  the  Empire, 
were  after  all  but  men — and  in  some  cases 
women.  The  position  of  women  in  the 
Fifteenth  Century  is  interesting.  We  read 
that  "  The  Trades  Gilds  also  admitted 
women  as  sisters,  with  equal  rights  with 
the  men  ;  they  could  wear  the  livery,  take 
apprentices,  and  sit  at  the  election  feasts : 
they  belonged  to  the  Drapers'  Company, 
The  Brewers'  Company,  The  Fishmongers, 
Weavers,  Grocers,  and  Stationers.  Neither 
do  they  seem  to  have  abused  this  right 
in  the  Middle  Ages.  For  any  fraud  they 
took  their  place  with  the  men  in  the  stocks  ; 
for  any  insubordination  they  were  appar- 
ently still  beaten  by  their  husbands."  We 
commend  the  position  of  these  women  to 
the  earnest  consideration  of  the  militant 
suffrage-sisters  of  to-day  with  the  remark 
that  they  will  be  well-advised  to  get 
husbands — if  they  can — and  take  their 
beatings  like  their  nobler  and  more 
womanly  ancestresses.  In  some  ways 
we  compare  unfavourably  with  the  past.

to  bring  it  into  conformity  with  the  latest

known  to  need  recommendation,  but  an 
interesting  addition  is  the  table  on  pp. 
627  and  628,  giving  the  dates  of  the  various 
editions  and  reprints.  It  is  worth  noting 
that  the  28th  edition  was  published 
oigiually  in  January,  1908,  but  has  had 
to  be  reprinted  on  no  fewer  than  four 
occasions,  and  now  before  that  year  is  out

&  Co.,  Ltd. — "  Anne  Seymour  Damer," 
by  Percy  Noble.  Anne  Seymour  Conway, 
or  as  she  is  better  known,  Anne  Seymour 
Damer,  has  more  than  ordinary  claims 
to  live  in  history  ;  during  her  long  and 
eventful  life  (1748-1828)  she  was  the 
centre  of  a  circle  in  which  rank,  wealth, 
fashion,  and  science  were  all  gathered 
together.  She  was  not  only  the  friend  of 
literary  and  artistic  people,  but  was  a 
sculptor  of  no  mean  repute,  and  the 
record  of  her  life,  as  set  forth  by  Mr.  Noble, 
is  extremely  pleasant  and  agreeable.  In 
whatever  she  undertook,  she  had  an 
amount  of  daring  and  spirit  quite  un- 
common in  ordinary  women.  The  book 
contains  numerous  and  well-chosen  illustra-

This  book  contains  most  of  the  facts 
pertaining  to  the  taxes  of  the  United 
Kingdom  and  the  revenue  which  they 
yield.  All  the  chief  avenues  of  the 
Public  Revenue  have  been  treated 
separately  under  the  various  heads  of 
Customs,  Excise,  and  other  Inland 
Revenue,  while  a  reference  will  be  found 
to  minor  taxes  also.  Each  chapter  has 
been  divided  into  three  sections,  viz., 
history  ;  the  rate  at  which  a  tax  is  now 
imposed  ;  and  some  statistics  of  the  yield 
of  revenue  during  recent  years.

House."  by  Stephen  Reynolds.  The 
"  poor  man  "  was  a  fisherman  in  a  South- 
Devon  town,  and  the  author  from  time 
to  time  spent  a  week  or  a  month  or  two 
in  his  house.  Tony  had  a  wife  and  a 
number  of  delightful  children.  They 
presented  Mr.  Reynolds  with  a  good  deal 
of  material  for  close  observation  and 
study,  and  the  thoughts  and  reflections 
they  suggested  to  his-  mind  are  recorded 
here  with  some  literary  distinction  and 
power.  The  story  that  runs  through  the 
book  is  not  cast  in  the  form  of  a  novel  ; 
these  pages,  indeed,  were  originally  written 
as  a  journal  and  as  letters  to  a  friend. '

"  English  Church  Teaching,"  by  the 
Bishop  of  Durham,  the  Bishop  of  Sodor 
and  Man,  and  Canon  R.  B.  Girdlestone,  is 
a  standard  manual  of  orthodox  evangelical

From  the  Same. — "  Naval  Warfare  ;  its 
Historical  Development  from  the  Age  of 
the  Great  Geographical  Discoveries  to 
the  Present  Time,"  by  Vice- Admiral 
Baron  Curt  von  Maltzahn,  translated  ! 
from    the    German   by   John   C.  Miller. 

The  chief  interest  in  this  little  work 
lies  in  the  fact  that  it  embodies  the 
views  of  a  distinguished  German  naval 
officer,  who  has  served  in  every  part 
of  the  world,  on  the  great  subject  described 
in  its  title.  It  shows  how  closely  Mahans' 
works  have  been  read,  marked,  learned, 
and  inwardly  digested  by  '  our  greatest 
European  naval  rivals.  Sonic  of  the 
conclusions  seem  fairly  obvious.  "  Just 
as  Napoleon's  army  in  Egypt  was  cut  off 
from  the  world  by  Nelson's  victory  at 
Aboukir  Bay,  so  would  the  Japanese 
army  in  Manchuria  have  become  prisoners 
in  the  grip  of  a  Russian  maritime 
supremacy  if  Rozhdestvensky's  fleet  had 
triumphed."  If — yes,  but  even  the 
Russians  did  not  expect  that  "  If  "  to 
come  off. 

Prom  Messrs.  S.  Low  &  Co.—"  The  Story 
of  the  Submarine,"  by  Lieut.-Colonel  and 
Brevet-Colonel  Cyril  Field,  R. M.L.I.  The 
majority  of  people  if  asked  when  sub- 
marine warfare  originated  would  probably 
say  within  the  last  few  years  ;  it  is  therefore 
somewhat  surprising  to  learn  from  this 
most  interesting  book  that  the  use  of  some 
device  for  under-water  work  can  be  traced 
back  as  far  as  B.C.  415.   Many  weird,  and 
in  most  cases  utterly  useless,  contrivances 
have  been  invented,  so  many  in  fact  that 
it  is  hopeless  to  try  and  enumerate  them 
here.    The  number  of  lives  that  have  been 
sacrificed  is  also  very  great,  and  often  the 
inventor  found  a  grave  in  his  own  inven- 
tion.   According  to  Appendix  I.  about 
225  submarines  were  invented  from  the 
earliest  time  to  a.d.   1900,  but  only  81 
were  actually  constructed,  and  of  these 
but  a  few  were  of  any  use  whatever. 
Every    shape,     including     fish,  barrel, 
porpoise,  cigar,  lemon,  and  ovoid,  has  been 
tried,  every  size  from  a  few  feet  to  160  or 
more,  and  every  possible  and  impossible 
method    of    propulsion.    An  interesting 
statement  of  the  number  of  submarines 
in  the  possession  of  the  various  Powers  is 
given  in  Appendix  II.    Britain,  it  appears, 
has  about  50;  Prance,  56,  with  12  sub- 
mersibles  ;  Germany,  6  ;  U.S.A.,  17  ;  Russia, 
36;    Japan   about    15.    In    addition  to 
submarines  proper,  the  author  deals  with 
semi-submarines,  submersibles,  submarine 
working  boats,  divers  and  diving  apparatus, 
torpedoes,  &c,  and  his  book  (produced 
by  permission  of  the  Lords  Commissioners 
of  the  Admiralty)  is  at  once  interesting  and 
instructive.    There  are  nearly  100  illustra- 
tions by  the  author,  and  a  curious  coloured

M.A.  This  tasteful  volume  is  a  very 
welcome  addition  to  the  admirable  hand- 
books of  English  Church  Expansion  series. 
The  author  has  chosen  the  plan  of  select- 
ing as  far  as  possible  the  lives  of  typical 
men,  both  Indian  and  English,  in  order 
to  tell  his  story,  and  an  entrancing  series 
of  episodes  it  is.  His  opinions  are  expressed 
with  frankness  and  without  reservation, 
and  the  material  is  most  skilfully  handled 
throughout,  with  a  view  to  making  the

P.S.A.  Messrs.  Mowbray  have  learned 
the  art  of  producing  attractive  and  choice 
volumes  at  a  moderate  price  ;  moreover, 
the  literary  quality  of  the  works  they  pro-

books  belong  to  the  Arts  of  the  Church

by  a  man  of  expert  knowledge  and  wide 
scholarship,  which,  however,  never  clogs 
the  style  or  makes  it  heavy  with  dry  and 
unnecessary  information.  The  illustra-

and  each  volume  has  a  complete  index.

Lucy  Freeman,  is  thoroughly  practical 
from  beginning  to  end.  Miss  Freeman 
has  had  many  years'  experience  in  connec- 
tion with  girls'  clubs,  and  the  advice  she 
has  to  offer  is  sound  and  straightforward. 
There  are  separate  chapters  on  the  starting 
of  a  club,  religious  teaching,  discipline  and 
order,  moral  teaching,  &c.  "  The  Chris- 
tian Use  of  the  Psalter,"  by  Rev.  A.  R. 
Whitham,  M.A.  This  book  is  intended 
for  the  plain  man  who  goes  to  church 
and  loves  the  Prayer  Book,  but  finds  the 
Psalms  sometimes  puzzling.  What  has 
been  attempted  in  these  lectures  is  not 
to  explain  them  in  detail,  but  to  suggest 
the  broad  lines  of  interpretation  which 
seem  always  to  have  been  in  the  minds 
of  the  Church  in  her  use  of  the  Psalter. 
"  Letters  to  a  Godson  :  Second  .Series,"

impression  is  already  called  for  (5s.).  As 
a  memento  of  one  who  by  common  consent 
was  of  those  who  came  nearest  of  all  men 
of  our  time  to  the  Divine  pattern,  the 
book  needs  no  recommendation  from  us. 

From  Mr.  Eveleign  Nash. — "  The  Man  Who 

Understood  Women,"  by  Leonard  Merrick. 
Mr.  Merrick  has  a  light  touch  and  a 
fantastical  humour  that  he  uses  to  excellent 
purpose.  This  volume  of  short  stories 
is  a  collection  of  trifles,  of  vignettes,  show- 
ing an  unusual  art.  Though  the  tales 
cover  a  wide  variety  of  subject,  the 
treatment  is  much  the  same  in  each — 
swift  drawing  of  character,  quick  develop- 
ment, and  piquant  incident. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Wife  of  Lafayette," 
by  M.  MacDermot  Crawford.  No  woman 
of  the  Revolution  possessed  a  more 
interesting  personality  than  Adrienne  de 
Noailles,  and  yet,  strange  to  say,  her  person- 
ality is  nowadays  little  more  than  a  name. 
She  was  one  of  the  few  whose  unsullied 
reputation  received  new  lustre  from  the 
misfortunes  of  the  Revolution,  and  no 
one  could  be  less  typical  of  the  grande 
dame  of  the  end  of  the  eighteenth  century 
than  Mme.  de  Lafayette.  She  had  none 
of  the  vices  and  weaknesses  of  the  period, 
but  she  had  all  its  virtues ;  she  was  a 
model  of  heroism,  an  unflinchingly  loyal 
wife,  and  a  woman  of  large  and  noble 
character.  Mrs.  Crawford  has  taken  great 
pains  with  her  biography,  and  it  is  a 
fascinating  piece  of  work.  The  life  of 
Adrienne  de  Noailles  is  set  forth  in  detail, 
with  the  times,  fitful  and  exciting,  in  which 
she  lived  ;  the  result  is  a  picture  of  singular 
nobility  and  attraction.  The  handsome 
volume  is  provided  with  a  number  of 
excellent  illustrations.

Publishers'  Circular 

From  Mr.  Grant  Richards. — "  The  Children 
of  the  Gutter,"  bv  Arthur  Applin,  author 
of  "The  Butcher  of  Bruton  Street."  It 
is  a  little  difficult  to  be  interested  in  the 
hero  of  this  story,  or  to  accept  his  course 
of  action  as  reasonable  ;  he  is  an  artist 
and  sees  a  fifteen-year-old  gutter  girl 
dancing  in  the  gutter  ;  he  takes  her  to  his 
lodgings,  and  after  helping  her  in  various 
ways  into  falling  in  love  with  him,  he  goes 
to  prison,  and  leaves  her  to  develop  into 
a  glorious  red-haired  dancer,  the  beauty  of 
London  and  rage  of  the  town.  He 
chooses  a  girl  with  money,  and  we  are 
left  to  imagine  that  the  wild  child  of 
Nature  breaks  her  heart,  to  a  certain 
extent,  and  then  leaves  for  the  music  halls 
of  Paris.  So  she  probably  dances  at  last 
into  much  worse  degradation  than  that 
from  which  the  hero  rescued  her.  The 
book  is  well  written  and  interesting, 
Maggie,  the  heroine,  being  admirably 
drawn  ;  to  make  the  reader  regret  that  her 
love  is  wrecked,  and  the  natural  gold  of 
her  fiery  nature  hidden  under  music-hall 
brass,  is  proof  of  the  author's  skill. 

From  the  Same. — "  When  the  Tide  Turns," 
by  Filson  Young.  This  story  of  the 
development  of  an  artist,  Rupert  Savage, 
is  undoubtedly  good,  and  in  many  of  its 
incidents  true  to  life  ;  it  is  a  pity,  therefore, 
that  its  ending,  even  if  artistically  possible, 
should  be  such  as  to  outrage  the  feelings 
of  those  who  feel  that  even  an  artist  may 
sometimes  respect  his  neighbour's  wife. 
The  author  has  deliberately  avoided  an 
artistic  ending,  because  he  preferred  to 
exalt  what  his  hero  describes  as  "  sinful 
happiness,"  and  in  doing  so  is  both  untrue 
to  his  art  and  spoils  an  otherwise  good 

From  Messrs.  Sands  &  Co, — "  Auriel 
Selwode,"  by  Emily  Bowles.  A  long, 
leisurely  and  very  able  story  of  rural 
England  in  the  early  eighteenth  century. 
A  good  deal  of  interest  centres  in  the 
haunted  old  rectory  in  which  Auriel  lives 
with  her  bachelor  uncle.  Miss  Bowles 
has  filled  her  tale  with  well-contrasted 
characters,  who  have  real  and  distinct 
individualities  ;  there  is  plenty  of  exciting 
incident,  and  a  happy,  quiet  ending. 

From  Messrs.  Sisley's  Ltd. — "  The  Wine  of 
the  Puritans,"  by  Van  Wyck  Brooks.  A 
Study  of  Present-Day  America.  There 
seems  to  be  some  dislike  still  in  our  country 
to  some  things  American  ;  perhaps,  because 
to  quote  the  present  book,  "  American 
history  is  so  unlovable."  But,  despite 
their  unromantic  past  and  their  apparently 
soul-crushing  methods,  Americans  in 
America  are  really  charming  people. 
Anyone  who  reads  this  study  will  be 
struck  with  its  cultured  style  and  its  very 
good  sense.  Some  of  our  criticisms  of 
Americans,  as  we  see  them,  seem  to  be 
true  ;  we  notice  that  it  is  remarked  that 
"  there  is  less  happiness  in  America 
than  in  any  other  country  in  the  civilised 
world.  And  it  is  because  we  associate 
happiness  with  spending  money."  Well, 
Americans  may  not  be  internally  happy, 
but  they  have  a  gift  of  cheering  up  the 
miserable,  and,  as  we  know  from  experi- 
ence, they  are  bountifully  kind  to  the 
stranger  within  their  gates,  All  the  good 
fish  stories  come  from  America. 

From  Messrs.  Smith,  Elder  &  Co.—"  The 
Man  of  the  Mask,"  by  Arthur  Stapylton 
Barnes,  M.A.  Monsignor  Barnes  has  - 
written  the  story  of  "  The  Man  in  the 
Iron  Mask  "  from  a  standpoint  completely 
novel.  Mr.  Andrew  Lang  was  content 
to  leave  the  mystery  unsolved.  Monsignor 
Barnes,  starting  where  Mr.  Lang  left  off, 
has  made  independent  research  among 
the  historical  records,  and  propounds  as  his 
solution  a  personality  hitherto  ignored 
in  this  regard.    The  son  of  an  English 

King,  a  member  of  the  Society  of  Jesus, 
an  Agent  of  the  French  Government,  and 
a  "  tipster  "  on  Newmarket  Heath,  the 
new  man  fits,  it  is  claimed,  into  all  the 
conditions  of  time  and  migration.  A  good 
deal  of  new  matter  is  introduced  into  the 
work,  and  the  author  has  made  out  an 
excellent  case. 

From  the  Same. — ' '  My  First  and  Last 
Appearance,"  and  other  original  recita- 
tions, by  Edward  F.  Turner.  We  are 
glad  to  welcome  these  selections  from 
"  T  Leaves "  "  Tantler's  Sister,  and 
other  untruthful  stories,"  and  "  More 
T  Leaves."  They  contain  many  a  hearty 
laugh,  and  should  prove  a  boon  to  the 
talented  amateur  in  his  domestic  circle. 

From  the  Same. — "The  Human  Woman," 
by  Lady  Grove.  Lady  Grove  has  here 
reprinted  a  number  of  essays,  contributed 
by  her  to  the  Nineteenth  Century,  Fort- 
nightly, and  other  reviews,  on  the  burning 
question  of  Women's  Suffrage.  She  wields 
a  vigorous  and  incisive  pen,  and  her 
slashing  polemic  will  entertain  even  where 
it  fails  to  convince.  _ 

From  Mr.1^  Elliot  Stock.—"  A  Royalist 
Raid,  and  other  Poems,"  by  Mr.  Walter 
Clifford  Meller.  A  series  of  short  and 
stirring  poems  on  the  leading  personages 
and  events  of  the  Stuart  period.  Mr. 
Meller  has  strong  Jacobite  sympathies, 
and  his  well  written  ballads  will  awaken 
an  echo  in  many  hearts  to  whom  lost 

causes  are  dear.  "  The  Shadow  of  the 

Angel,"  by  Mr.  Ernest  W.  Shurtleff. 
This  is  the  first  London  edition  of  a  little 
volume  of  heroic  couplets  of  which  five 
editions  have  already  been  published  in 
America.  Its  theme  is  the  consoling 
influence  of  angelic  messengers  in  the 
Bible  and  in  human  life.  Some  photo- 
graphic reproductions  of  famous  paintings 
help  to  make  a  very  attractive  little  gift 

From    Mr.  Arthur    H.    Stockwell.  —  "  A 

Shuttlecock   for   Critics,   being  the  Up- 
roarings    in    Prose    of    a  Dilettante's 
Pegasus,"   by  James  J.  Eaton,  with  a 
frontispiece  by  Edgar  H.  Hawley.  This 
is  a  pleasant  handy  little  pocket  volume 
of  gossipy  essays  :  Of  Books  and  Reading  ; 
Two    Favourite    Authors    (Sir  Thomas 
Browne  and   Robert  Louis  Stevenson)  ; 
Ways    of    Travel  ;    Philosophers ;  Para- 
pluitics  ;    Ars   Vivendi,    &c.    Mr.  Eaton 
makes  friends  of  his  readers  in  his  first 
essay — at  least  of  those  who  are  lovers  of 
books ;  he  holds  that  there  is  no  other 
pleasure  in  life  in  any  way  comparable  to 
the  delight  of  reading.    Many  have  shared 
his  regret  that  life  is  not  long  enough  for 
reading  all  that  one  would  wish  to  read. 
Of  R.  L.  Stevenson's  style  he  says  :  "It 
is  the  perfect  product  of  his  instinctive 
appreciation  of  the  melody  of  language 
joined  to  his  complete  comprehension  of 
the  balance  and  construction  of  the  period 
in  prose.     Though  its  acquirement  was 
the  result  of  many  years'  work  in  his 
youth  it  is  never  laboured — a  flawless 
and  most  musical  flow  of  language,  in 
which  every  word  bears  its  utmost  signifi- 
cance, and  where  none  could  be  displaced 
or  omitted,  distinguishes  even  the  most 
trivial  of  his  writings.    He  aimed  at  per- 
fection in  style  ;  he  attained  it  more  nearly 
than  any  English  writer  before  or  since." 

From  Mr.  T.  Fisher  Unwin. — "  Through 
Sorrow's  Gate,"  by  Mr.  Halliwell  Sut- 
cliffe.  Mr.  Unwiu  has  chosen  this  well- 
known  and  successful  story  for  re-issue, 
as  the  first  of  his  "  Adelphi "  library, 
a  new  series  of  "  novels  which  have  gained 
the  rank  of  standard  books."  The  paper, 
typography,  and  binding  are  all  thoroughly 
good,  and  the  price  very  moderate.

I       OF  ' 


Keep  in  Touch  with  the  Trade 

By  Advertising  in  "The  Publishers'  Circular" 

"The  Publishers*  Circular"  is  read  by  booksellers,  librarians,  and 
all  connected  with  boohs  and  literature  at  home  and  abroad.  It  possesses 
certain  features  which  mahe  it  indispensable,  and  there  is  hardly  a 
bookseller  in  the  country  who  does  not  read  and  study  every  number. 

The  up=to=date  Trade  information  ;  the  List  of  Books  Wanted :  and 
the  detailed  particulars  of  New  Publications  are  some  of  the  weekly 
features  which  ensure  its  being  bought  and  read  by  booksellers, 
librarians,  and  large  bookbuyers  generally. 

"  The  Publishers'  Circular "  is  therefore  an  excellent  medium  for 
Publishers'  Announcements.  An  advertisement  in  its  pages  is  the  most 
effective  and  economical  means  of  reaching  the  men  whose  business 
it  is  to  buy  books,  and  who  respond  to  book  advertising  more  than 
any  other  class. 

Booksellers  having  rare  or  second-hand  books  for  disposal  should 
try  the  effect  of  an  advertisement  in  "The  Publishers'  Circular."  We 
are  every  day  receiving  fresh  testimony  as  to  the  efficacy  of  our 
advertising  columns  in  this  respect.

Account  of  the 
Voyage  Corporatif  des 
Co  mm  is- Libra,  res 
Francais  a  Londres 
12,  13  &  14  Juillet.  1908 

All  the  booksellers  and  publishers  who 
took  part  in  the  reception  of  our  French 
confreres  last  summer,  and  our  readers 
generally,  will  read  with  interest  the 
following  extracts  from  a  charming 
illustrated  brochure  published  by  the 
French  Association,  describing  the  visit. 

Lorsque,  il  y  a  pres  d'un  an,  plusieurs 
d'entre  nous  parlerent  d'une  excursion 
possible  a  Londres,  mil  ne  pouvait  prevoir 
le  succes  qui  a  couronne  nos  efforts. 

Nous  etions  en  effet  160  voyageurs 
environ,  en  grand e  majorite  commis- 
libraixes  et  leurs  families,  venus  surtout 

de  Paris,  mais  aussi  de  Bayonne,  Cler- 
mont-Ferrand, Geneve,  Lille,  Melun, 
Nevers.  Nogent-le-Rotrou,  Pithiviers, 
Toulon,  etc.  Nous  representions,  en  im 
mot,  toutes  les  provinces  francaises, 
voire  meme  un  peu  la  Suisse. 

vSi  nous  conservons  un  inoubliable 
souvenir  de  l'excursion,  malgre  la  pluie 
et  les  petits  ennuis  inevitables,  disons  de 
suite  qu'il  faut  en  reporter  tout  rhomieur 
a  nos  aimables  collegues  anglais.  Leur 
inlassable  complaisance  a  ete  pour  nous 
muniment  precieuse,  faeilitant  la  tache 
laborieuse  et  parfois  ingrate  des  membres 
du  Comite,  qui  ont  eu  a  surmonter  de 
nombreuses  difficultes  pour  la  bonne 
organisation  du  voyage,  avant  et  pendant 

Maintenant.  reportons-nous  au  1 1 
juillet,  1908,  et  deerivons,  autant  que 
notre  memoire  le  permettra,  les  evene- 
ments  du  voyage. 

Nous  sommes  done  reunis  le  samedi 
soir  11,  vers  9  heures,  gare  du  Nord  ; 
plusieurs  de  nos  amis,  que  nous  remer- 
cions  sincerement,  M.  Bayle,  du 
journal  "  La  Librairie,"  M.  Labarthe,  de 
Geneve,  M.  de  Pachtere,  M.  Sevin,  etc., 
retenus  a  Paris,  sont  venus  nous  aider  a 
monter  dans  le  train,  ou  plutot  dans  les 
trains,  car  il  y  a  grande  affluence  pour 
Londres.  et  notre  depart  ne  rappelle  que 
de  tres  loin  les  embarquements  militaires 
regies  et  methodiques  auxquels  nous  | 
etions  habitues  au  regiment. 

Mais  qu'importe  !  les  trains  roulent,  et 
nous  nous  retrouvons  a  Calais  pour  le 
trajet  maritime,  effectue  pour  les  uns  sur 
le  Dover,  pour  les  autres  sur  le  Nord, 
deux  magnifiques  steamers.  La  mer  est 
superbe,  sans  une  vague  ;  nous  avons  a 
peine  le  temps  de  visiter  les  machines,  les 
cabines,  les  salons,  les  fumoirs,  sans 
oublier  le  buffet  et,  deja,  le  jour  parait, 
puis  bientot  les  falaises  de  Douvres  sont 
en  vue.  Nous  croisons  plusieurs  vapeurs, 
quelques  bateaux  de  peche,  et  nous  met- 
tons  le  pied  sur  la  terre  anglaise.  Nous 
prenons  place  dans  les  wagons  reserves 
pour  nous  et  1'  Association  des  Institu- 
teurs,  et  en  route  pour  Londres  ! 

Nous  longeons  la  mer  un  certain 
temps  et  traversons  ensuite  de  riches 
campagnes,  coupees  par-ei  par-la  de 
charmants  cottages  oii,  eertes,  il  doit 
faire  bon  vivre.  Bientot  les  gares  se 
succedent  plus  rapprochees,  les  rues, 
formees  de  petites  maisons  semblables, 
commencent  a  se  montrer,  puis  les 
fabriques  et  les  usines,  puis  enfin  la 
Tamise.  Nos  billets  sont  verifies  a  Vic- 
toria Station  et,  quelques  minutes  apres, 
nous  debarquons  a  Charing-Cross. 

Mais  quelles  sont,  sur  le  quai,  ces 
figures  amies  qui  semblent  nous  chercher 
au  milieu  de  la  foule  ?  Ce  sont  nos  col- 
legues anglais  :  Mr.  Chaundry,  d'Oxford  ; 

Mr.  Beet,  Mr.  Hobbs,  Mr.  Crockett  et  Mr. 
Watson,  de  la  section  de  Londres  de  la 
National  Book  Trade  Provident  Society, 
ainsi  qu'un  de  nos  societaires,  M.  De- 
laire,  de  la  Librairie  Nilsson,  qui  sont 
venus  nous  souhaiter  la  bienvenue  malgre 
The  are  niatinale. 

(Then  follow  descriptions  of  the  sights 
of  London,  which  were  seen  by  means  of 
"  les  omnibus  ou  autobus  et  le  Tub." 
If  our  French  friends  "  asked  a  police- 
man "  where  to  get  "  a  Tub — "  even  he 
must  have  been  nonplussed.) 

Stationers'  Hall 

Nous  avons  tous  ete  agreablement 
surpris  par  la  magnifique  reception  qui 
nous  fut  faite  au  Stationers'  Hall,  la 
vielle  et  historique  maison  de  la  Cor- 
poration du  Livre,  et  certes,  aucun  de 
ceux  qui  assisterent  a  cette  soiree  ne 

Disons  d'abord  que,  sur  l'initiative  de 
M.  Cooper,  secretaire  de  la  Book  Trade 
Provident  Society,  un  comite  special 
s'etait  forme  pour  nous  recevoir,  sous  la 
presidence  de  Mr.  Denny,  President  de  la 
Book  Trade  Provident  Society,  assiste  de 
MM.  Barwick,  Minoggio,  Hodges,  Shaylor, 
Crockett,  Cooper. 

Des  notre  arrivee,  l'un  de  nos  aimables 
hotes,  Mr.  Barwick,  qui  parle  francais 
aussi  couramment  que  nous,  nous  intro- 
duit  dans  les  salles  de  l'ancienne  demeure, 
ou  nous  sommes  recus  par  Mr.  Denny  et 
les  membres  du  Comite  de  reception,  puis 
par  Mr.  Rivington,  secretaire  de  la 
Stationers'  Company. 

La  grande  salle,  ou  des  sieges  sont 
disposes,  renferme  les  vieux  souvenirs  de 
la  Corporation,  les  actes  officiels,  les 
chartes.  Les  splendides  pieces  d'argen- 
terie  sont  exposees  pom  nous,  et  si  tot 
installes,  Mr.  William  Heinemann  nous 
souliaite  en  francais  la  bienvenue  par  un 
discours  fort  aimable  que  nous  repro- 
duisous  ci-dessous.  Mr.  Heinemann  est 
l'un  des  grands  editeurs  anglais,  et  nous 
apprecions  beaucoup  le  tres  grand  hon- 
neur  qu'il  a  bien  voulu  nous  faire. 

(Here  follows  Mr.  Heinemann'*  speech. ) 

De  vigoureux  applaudissements  sa- 
luent  la  conclusion  de  Mr.  Heinemann, 
et  Mr.  Rivington,  le  secretaire  de  la 
Stationers'  Company,  prend  la  parole  pour 
nous  dire  qu'il  est  heureux  de  nous  offrir, 
au  nom  de  la  Corporation,  l'hospitalite, 
et  pom  nous  conter  l'liistoire  de  la 
vieille  Societe  et  de  l'antique  demeure 
historique  ou  nous  sommes. 

11  est  applaudi  frenetiquement,  et  la 
parole  est  maintenant  a  M.  Rouche,  le 
president  de  1' Association,  qui  prononce 
le  discours  suivant. 

(Then    follows    the    speech    of  M.

January  9,  1909 

La  fin  du  discours  est  accueillie  par  des 
hurrahs  enrages,  qui  cessent  seulement 
lorsque  M.  Wilhelm,  President  du  Comite 
francais,  prononce  en  anglais  1' allocution 

(Here  follows  the  charming  little 
speech,  in  English,  of  M.  Wilhelm.) 

Nos  amis  anglais  sont  charmes  de 
l'aimable  attention  du  President  du 
Comite  francais  de  parler  leur  langue,  et 
lui  expriment  leur  sentiment  par  leurs 

Mr.  Barwick,  qui  a  ete  l'ame  de  la 
reunion,  repond  en  francais  qu'il  ne  faut 
pas  se  considerer  comme  Francais  ou 
Anglais,  mais  comme  des  freres  d'uue 
grande  famille,  et  il  termine  en  disant 
qu'une  guerre  entre  les  deux  nations 
serait  mi  crime ;  il  est  applaudi  aussi 
chaleureusement,  et  il  nous  invite  a 
passer  dans  une  salle  voisine,  ou  un 
magnifique  buffet  est  dresse. 

Des  rafraichissements,  des  cigares, 
etc.,  sont  servis  pendant  que  les  conver- 
sations s'etablissent ;  certains  parmi  nous 
parlent  anglais,  tout  specialement  Mme. 
Wilhelm  dont  la  parfaite  connaissance  de 
l'anglais  nous  fut  si  precieuse  ;  de  meme 
plusieurs  de  nos  hotes  parlent  francais  ; 
tout  s'arrange  done  pour  le  mieux. 

Nous  revenons  ensuite  dans  la  grande 
salle,  et  le  concert  commence  par  la 
"  Marseillaise,"  suivie  du  "  God  save  the 
Khig."  Mr.  P.  Hodges  s'etait  charge  du 
programme,  fort  bien  choisi,  et  nous 
avons  le  plaisir  d'entendre  nos  collegues 
anglais  Mr.  Leach,  Mr.  Swinford,  Mr. 
Hennings,  etc.,  dans  diverses  chansons 
anglaises  ainsi  que  M.  Bonneau,  le  sec- 
retaire de  l'Amicale,  dans  "  Le  Lac," 
les  uns  et  les  autres  fort  applaudis  par 

N'oublions  pas  de  mentionuer  aussi 
1 'aim able  telegramme  suivant  qui  nous 
est  adresse  en  francais  au  Stationers'  Hall 
par  Mr.  Pearce,  secretaire  de  1*  Associated 
Booksellers'  Society  (Libraires  associes) : 

"  Je  regrette  infiniment  qu'il  ne  me 
soit  pas  possible  d'etre  avec  vous.  Tous 
mes  souhaits  pour  une  visite  agreable. 
Vive  l'entente  cordiale  !  qu'elle  devienne 
encore  plus  assuree  pour  le  bonheur  de 
nos  cheres  patries  !  " 

Nous  remercions  tout  particulierement 
Mr.  Pearce  et  les  membres  de  V Associated 
Booksellers'  Society. 

Mais  le  temps  passe  vite,  et  bientot 
apres  avoir  ehante  les  hynmes  nationaux, 
nous  devons  nous  quitter  pour  rentrer  a 
l'hotel,  mais  avec  l'espoir  de  nous  revoir. 

Le  mardi,  des  le  matin,  plusieurs 
groupes  se  fonneut  pour  visiter  les  uns

Rameau,  who  describes  it,  says  : 

En  allant  a  Londres,  l'Association  des 
Commis- Libraires  Francais  n'avait  pas 
pour  but  unique  de  faire  un  voyage 
d'agrement.  Fidele  a  son  programme, 
elle  voulait  mettre  a  profit  ce  voyage  pour 
donner  a  ses  adherents  une  lecon  de 
choses  par  une  idee  de  la  production,  de 
l'edition  anglaise  et,  en  meme  temps, 
etablir  des  relations  amicales  avec  ses 
collegues  d'Outre-Manche. 

Cette  lecon  de  choses,  sollicitee  par 
Mr.  Lee,  directeur  de  la  succursale 
Cassell,  de  Paris,  nous  fut  obtenue  par 
l'entremise  du  tres  amiable  Directeur  des 
services  du  Cercle  de  la  Librairie.  M. 

Lors  de  son  voyage  a  Londres,  en  juin 
dernier,  ce  dernier  fit  part  de  notre  desir 
a  Mr.  Edward  Bell,  President  du  Cercle 
des  Editeurs  anglais.  Celui-ci,  avec  une 
grande  bienveillance,  voulut  bien  prendre 
en  main  notre  cause  et  nous  obtint  par 
Mr.  Golding,  l'un  des  sous-directeurs, 
l'autorisation  de  la  visite  si  interessante 
de  la  Maison  Cassell  &  Co.,  l'une  des  plus 
importantes,  sinon  la  plus  importante 
maison  d'edition  a  Londres,  dont  nous 
connaissons  tous  la  filiale  de  Paris.  Nous 
renouvelons  ici,  a  chaemi  de  ces  Mes- 
sieurs, l'assurance  de  notre  vive  gratitude 
pour  la  belle  lecon  qu'ils  nous  ont 

Nous  avons,  en  France,  des  maisons 
d'edition  considerables,  mais  aucune,  ne 
possede  semblable  organisation  et  ne 
reunit  tous  les  services  de  fabrication 
mecanique  que  nous  venons  de  voir, 
depuis  la  fonte  du  caractere  jusqu'a  la 
mise  en  vente  du  livre. 

Avant  de  partir,  par  une  delicate 
attention.  Mr.  Bovit  fait  distribuer  a 
chacun  de  nous  le  numero  de  The  World's 
It'i')/,'  qui  rend  compte  de  1' Exposition 
franco-britaunique,  et  e'est  avec  nos  vifs 
remerciements  que  nous  quittons  la 
Maison  Cassell  &  Co.  En  la  quittant, 
nous  emportons  la  forte  impression  d'une 
puissance,  d'une  action,  d'une  direction 
auxquelles  nous  rendons  honimage  et  qui 
se  font  sentir  dans  le  monde  entier  par 

des  succursales  etablies  a  Paris,  New 
York,  Melbourne  et  Toronto. 

(Then  follows  a  long  account  of  a  visit 
to  the  Exhibition.) 

Good  Wishes  from  Edinburgh 

Voici  maintenant  le  dernier  diner  pris 
en  commun  ;  il  faut  songer  a  partir. 
Avant  de  quitter  Londres  nous  avons  soin 
de  ne  pas  oublier  nos  amis  d'Ecosse  et 
nous  adressons  a  Mr.  D.  Haldane. 
secretaire  de  1' Edinburgh  Assistant  Book- 
sellers' Association  un  telegramme  de 
cordiale  sympathie.  M.  Minoggio,  de  la 
maison  Hachette,  a  l'amabilite  de  venir  a 
l'hotel  nous  faire  ses  adieux,  et  non  sans 
regrets,  il  faut  nous  dinger  vers  la  gare. 

Nous  y  trouvons  tous  nos  amis  venus 
nous  serrer  la  main  encore  une  fois,  et 
\  nous  dire  au  revoir,  et  au  revoir  e'est  bien 
ce  qu'il  convient  de  dire,  car  des  liens 
d'amitie  et  de  sympathie  sont  maintenant 
:  etablis  entre  les  collegues  francais  et  les 
collegues  anglais,  et  ces  liens  dureront 
toujours,  comme  le  souvenir  de  l'aimable 
reception  qui  nous  a  ete  faite. 

Aussi  merci  a  vous,  amis  Barwick.

loin.  Nous  arrivons  a  Douvres,  en  pleine 
nuit,  la  mer  est  un  peu  agitee  :  cependant 
la  traversee  s'effectue  sans  incidents,  par 
un  superbe  clair  de  lune.  A  Calais,  nous 
prenons  vite  place  dans  les  trains  de 
Paris  et  a  l'arrivee,  nous  nous  quittons  a 
la  hate,  afin  de  profiter  des  quelques 
heures  fibres  pour  dormir  mi  peu  avant  de 

Plusieurs  semaines  se  sont  eeoulees 
depuis  notre  retour  et  cependant  nous 
songeons  toujours  a  la  clialeureuse  re- 
ception qui  nous  fut  faite  dans  cette 
immense  ville.  Nous  conservons  le 
souvenir  des  amities  ebauchees.  le  regret 
de  n'avoir  pu  qu'entrevoir  cette  vie 
affairee  si  intense,  ces  musees  et  ces 
monuments  si  interessants  et  surtout 
1  espoir  de  voir  un  jour  en  France  nos 
amis  anglais.

Courtney  has  written  a  new  play — one 
that  deals  with  Brittany  and  Breton 
legends — which  is  at  present  hi  the

January  9,  1909        The    Publishers'  Circular 


Notes  and  Announcements 

Messrs.  Longmans.  Green  &  Co.  are 
preparing  for  publication,  during  the 
coining  spring,  five  volumes  in  a  new  one 
shilling  net  series  of  Anglican  Chinch 
Handbooks,  edited  by  the  Rev.  W.  H. 
Griffith  Thomas,  D.D.  The  object  of  the 
series  is  to  present  to  Church  people,  in  a 
cheap  and  readable  form,  a  trustworthy 
account  of  the  History,  Faith,  Worship, 
and  Work  of  the  Church  of  Christ  in 
general,  and  the  Church  of  England  in 
particular.  The  titles  of  forthcoming 
volumes  are :  "  Christianity  and  the 
Supernatural  "  ;  "  Social  Work  "  ;  "  Pas- 
toral Work  "  ;  "  The  Joy  of  Bible 
Study  "  ;  and  "  Old  Testament  Theo- 

Her  Majesty  the  Queen  of  Spain,  as 
well  as  His  Majesty  the  King  of  Portugal, 
ordered  copies  of  Queen  Alexandra's 
Christmas  Gift  Book  direct  from  Mr. 
Thatcher,  College  Green,  Bristol ;  the 
copies  were  specially  bound  by  Mr.  H. 
Frowde.  Oxford  Press.  His  Majesty 
King  Edward  VTX  accepted  a  copy  of 
the  photograph  of  Mr.  Thatcher's  shop 
window  specially  dressed  with  Queen 
Alexandra's  Christmas  Gift  Book. 

The  earliest  of  the  serious  books  to 
be  issued  in  1909  is  that  on  the  present 
condition  and  progress  of  "The  South 
African  Natives,"  which  Mr.  Murray 
publishes  at  once.  It  has  been  prepared 
by  the  Native  Races  Committee,  and 
contains  a  special  chapter  on  the  adminis- 
tration of  natives  by  Sir  Godfrey  Lagden, 
whose  inestimable  services  durhig  the 
War  are  not  likely  to  be  forgotten.  The 
book  makes  a  thoughtful  study  of  the 
questions  of  labour,  land,  education,  and 
taxation,  so  far  as  they  affect  the  South 
African  natives.  Its  publication  is  singu- 
larly opportune,  synchronising  as  it  does 
with  the  Congress  on  native  affairs  to 
be  held  during  January  in  Cape  Town. 

The  forthcoming  number  of  The 
Quarterly  Review,  to  be  published  on 
January  14th,  will  contain  articles  on 
several  subjects  of  immediate  public 
interest — the  Territorial  Force.  the 
question  of  a  Minimum  Wage,  Motor- 
car Legislation,  Female  Suffrage  (by 
Professor  Dicey),  the  Care  of  the  Feeble- 
minded (by  Dr.  Savage),  and  the 
Turkish  Revolution  (by  Dr.  Dillon). 
History  and  Biography  are  represented 
by  articles  on  Sir  Henry  Wotton  (Mr. 
Pearsall  Smith's  "Life"),  the  influence 
of  Religion  on  Politics  hi  Ancient  Egypt 
(by  Mr.  Weigall,  a  distinguished  member 
of  the  "  Service  des  Antiquites  in  Egypt), 
the  Foundation  of  the  Third  Republic 
(based  on  the  work  of  M.  Hanotaux, 
by  Sir  Ernest  Satow),  Herodotus  (Dr. 
Macan's  edition,  by  Mr.  Grundy),  and 
Irish  History  as  treated  by  Mrs.  Green 
and  others  (by  Mr.  R.  Dunlop).  Among 
literary  subjects,  the  Poet  Laureate 
contributes  an  article  comparing  Dante 
and  Milton  ;  Mr.  Escott  discusses  Antony 
Trollope,  whose  lasting  popularity  is 
attested  by  numerous  recent  reprints, 
and  Mr.  Henry  Newbolt  criticises  Mr. 
Hardy's  historical  drama  "  The  Dynasts," 
under  the  title  "  A  New  Departure  in 
English  Poetry."    This  being  the  cen- 

[  tenary  year  of  the  birth  of  Charles  Darwin 
and  of  The  Quarterly  Review,  a  special 
centenary  number,  containing,  among 
other  things,  a  history  of  The  Quarterly 
Review     and    articles    on  Darwinism 

j  from  various  points  of  view,  will,  it  is 

I  hoped,  be  published  in  April. 

Messrs.  Henry  Young  &  Sons,  an- 
'  nounce  that  they  will  shortly  publish 
I  another  work  by  the  octogenarian 
j  Liverpool  author,  William  Lowes  Rushton , 
j  entitled  ' '  Shakespeare  and  the  '  Arte 
',  of  English  Poesie,'  "  inwhich  Mr.  Rushton 
j  proves  by  many  examples  Shakespeare's 

indebtedness  to  that  famous  Elizabethan 


The  two  pictures  by  the  late  James 
McNeill  Whistler  wliich  are  being  ex- 
hibited at  the^Royal  Academy  in  the 
collection  of  *the  late  Mr.  George 
McCulloch,  are  reproduced  in  the  "Life"  of 
the  artist  by  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Pennell,  lately 
published  by  Mr.  Heinemann.  The  two 
pictures  in  question  are  the  very  fine 
portrait  of  Whistler  by  himself,  which 
forms  the  frontispiece  to  the  second 
volume,  and  the  upright  Valparaiso 
Nocturn,  which  is  one  of  some  90  illus- 
trations in  the  first  volume. 

A  book  with  a  second-hand  middle- 
aged  bookseller  for  its  hero,  or  say 
principal  character,  is  a  bit  of  a  novelty, 
but  this  is  what  Mr.  Teignmouth  Shore's 
new  story  "  A  Soul's  Awakening,"  just 
published  by  Mr.  John  Long,  is.  And 
it  is  a  capital  book,  too,  one  which  we  can 
heartily  recommend  to  our  readers,  the 
booksellers.  Arthur  Murchant,  of  the 
j  little  dark  bookshop  in  Turnmill  Lane, 
j  Holborn,  is  a  fine  character,  well-drawn, 
and  the  picture  of  the  dawn  of  a  great 
happiness  coming  into  Ins  humdrum  life 
and  its  simset  in  sorrow  is  a  bit  of  good 
and  true  work. 

"  As  yet  South  America  is  scarcely 
producing  her  own  literature,  though  she 
is  a  great  reader  of  fiction  and  other 

;  lighter  books.  It  will  be  interesting  to 
see  which  of  the  old  countries  will  ulti- 
mately supply  most  books  to  South 
American  readers.  One  would  say  Spain, 
for  the  language  of  South  America  is 
Spanish,  but  then  Spain  is  not  exactly 
producing  the  books  wliich  South  America 
wants.     Next  one  would  say  France, 

!  because  French  fiction  is  perhaps  nearest 
the  taste  of  the  light-hearted  South 
American  reader.  There,  again,  how- 
ever, our  English  tongue  comes  in  to  help 
us,  for  next  to  Spanish,  it  is  best  known 
in  South  America." — The  Book  Monthly.

J  Mr.  James  Coleman,  of  Tottenham  Ter- 
race, White  Hart  Lane,  Tottenham,  has

Mr.  William  J.  Locke's  new  novel, 
"  Septimus  "  will  bet  published  next 
week  by  Mr.  Murray.  The  central 
character,  after  whom  the  novel  is  named, 
is  a  harmless  and  irresponsible  inventor.

"  Sweet  Peas  and  How  to  Grow 
Them  "  is  the  title  of  a  well-illustrated 
volume  written  by  Mr.  H.  H.  Thomas, 
editor  of  The  Gardener,  which  Messrs. 
Cassell  publish.  It  gives  practical  advice 
on  all  phases  of  the  subject,  and  tells  how 
to  grow  sweet  peas  for  home  and  garden, 
as  well  as  for  exhibition,  how  to  raise 
new  varieties,  and  has  a  special  chapter 
entitled  "  The  Beginner's  Guide  to  Sweet 
Pea  Growing."  Whether  in  the  garden 
or  for  table  decoration,  the  sweet  pea  is 
one  of  the  joys  of  life. 

On  January  15th  Messrs.  Cassell  will 
publish  a  popular  shilling  edition  of 
Maurice  Hewlett's  novel,  "The  Spanish 

"  Gardening  hi  the  North  "  (Cassell) 
is  the  title  of  a  volume  by  Mr.  S. 
Arnott  and  Mr.  R.  P.  Brotherston,  which 
deals  in  a  thorough  and  workmanlike 
manner  with  the  subject. 

Among  the  best  of  the  book  reviews 
given  by  the  illustrated  papers  are  those 
in  The  Illustrated  Sporting  and  Dramatic 
News,  which  has  been  established  over 
thirty-five  years,  and  is  every  week  more 
attractive  than  ever.  If  a  prize  were 
offered  for  getting  the  best  results  out 
of  printing  half-tone  process  blocks,  the 
staff  of  the  S.  &  D.  would  come  out  very 
close  to  the  bald  spot. 

Messrs.  Gowans  &  Gray,  Ltd.,  of 
London  and  Glasgow,  have  recently 
published  at  6d.  net,  a  wonderful  httle 
edition  of  "  Las  Cien  M^jores  Poesias 
(Liricas)  de  la  lengua  Cistellana  "  (the 
Hundred  Best  Poems  (Lyrics)  in  the 
vSpanish  Language).  It  is  a  beautifully 
prhited  httle  volume  of  350  pages,  and 
ranges  over  the  whole  history  of  vSpanish 
poetry,  exclusive  of  the  work  of  living 

On  January  nth,  hi  the  "Great 
Cities  of  the  World  "  series,  Mr.  T.  Fisher 
Unwin  will  publish  a  book  by  Mr.  E.  A. 
Reynolds- Ball,  entitled  "  Paris  in  its 
Splendour."  It  is  an  attempt  to  give  a 
general  impression  of  Paris  past  and 
present,  and  of  the  more  striking  features 
of  the  social  life  of  the  city  to-day.  It 
presents  in  a  readable  and  attractive 
form  a  large  amount  of  information  about 
the  history,  the  people  and  the  buildings 
of  Paris,  and  has  many  illustrations. 

"  The  Industrial  and  Commercial 
Influence  of  the  English  Patent  System  " 
is  dealt  with  by  Mr.  A.  F.  Ravenshear  hi  a 
volume  wliich  Mr.  T.  Fisher  Unwin  will 
publish  on  January  nth.  The  subject 
of  patents,  and  especially  their  effect 
upon  British  industries,  has  for  some  time 
been  prominently  before  the  public.

The  Selborne  Society  has  revived  the 
old  title  of  its  magazine,  which  will 
henceforth  be  called  The  Selborne 
Magazine  {and  Nature  Notes),  and  will 
be  published  by  Messrs.  George  Philip

In  view  of  the  production  by  Miss 
Julia  Neilson  and  Mr.  Fred  Terry  of 
Mr.  William  Devereux's  play,  "  Henry 
of  Navarre,"  at  the  New  Theatre,  on 
January  7th,  Messrs.  Greening  inform 
us  that  they  are  publishing  a  novel  by 
Miss  May  Wynne,  entitled  "  Henry  of 
Navarre,"  which  deals  with  the  story 
of  Mr.  Devereux's  play.  Messrs.  Greening 
are  also  issuing  a  cheap  edition  of  Miss 
Wynne's  story,  "  A  Maid  of  Brittany." 

Mr.  M.  P.  Shiel's  new  novel  "  The 
Isle  of  Lies,"  which  Mr.  Werner  Laurie 
is  about  to  publish,  tells  how  an  enthu- 
siastic professor  daringly  possesses  him- 
self of  a  "  Stele  "  thousands  of  years  old, 
the  prized  possession  of  an  Egyptian 
convent,  and  being  unable  to  decipher  all 
that  is  engraved  upon  it,  conceives  the 
idea  of  bringing  up  a  son  in  such  fashion 
that  he  shall  have  god-like  capacities  and 
be  able  to  make  out  the  inscription. 
Consequently  he  marries  a  carefully 
selected  woman,  and  when  a  son  is  born 
he  takes  him  away  to  a  remote  island, 
and  there  by  a  most  elaborate  series  of 
deceptions  brings  him  up  in  the  belief 
that  there  are  no  limits  to  the  power  of 
man.  On  his  nineteenth  birthday  the  young 
man,  gifted  with  extraordinary  powers 
and  extraordinary  ignorance,  and  having 
never  seen  anyone  but  his  father,  whom 
he  believes  omnipotent,  escapes  into  the 
world,  and  makes  a  rare  sensation. 

Mr.  Werner  Laurie  is  also  shortly 
publishing  Mr.  Ranger  Gull's  new  novel 
"A  Gentleman  from  Portland,"  which 
concerns  a  millionaire  philanthropist  and 
a  beautiful  girl. 

"  Fishes  from  Islands  of  the  Philippine 
Archipelago "  is  the  title  of  part  of 
Volume  XXVII.  of  the  Bulletin  of 
the  United  States  Bureau  of  Fisheries. 
It  is  by  Dr.  David  S.  Jordan  and  R.  Earl 
Richardson.  Twelve  of  the  fish  described 
are  said  to  be  new  to  science. 

Miss  Florence  Warden's  latest  novel 
is  entitled  "  The  Case  of  Sir  Geoffrey," 
and  it  is  now  being  published  by  Mr. 
John  Long.  It  is  described  as  a  tale  of 
mystery,  and  the  plot  is  constructed  on 
most  original  lines,  which  will  perplex  and 
baffle  the  most  astute  reader  of  stories 
of  crime. 

Messrs.  Passmore  &  Alabaster,  4, 
Paternoster  Buildings,  London,  send 
their  two  popular  Almanacks  for  1909. 
Spurgeon's  Book  Almanack,  which  has 
been  issued  for  more  than  fifty  years, 
contains  bright  articles  by  C.  H.  Spurgeon 
and  others,  while  the  texts  have  been 
selected  by  the  Rev.  Thos.  Spurgeon 
during  his  illness.  Jolm  Ploughman's 
Sheet  Almanack  always  finds  a  welcome, 
with  its  racy  proverbs  and  words  of 
kindness  for  man  and  beast.  The  pub- 
lishers also  send  a  copy  of  C.  H.  Spur- 
geon's last  published  Weekly  Sermon, 
and  although  they  will  publish  shortly  the 
fifty-fourth  yearly  volume  of  the  great 
preacher's  discourses,  they  still  have 
enough  manuscripts  to  issue  a  fresh 
sermon  for  nine  or  ten  years  to  come. 
They  will  gladly  send  to  any  reader  a 
specimen  copy  free  on  receipt  of  full 

A  very  useful  classified  list  of  surplus 
books  at  very  cheap  prices  is  issued  by 
Day's  Library,  Ltd.,  96,  Mount  Street, 
Park  Lane.  It  includes  works  in  every 
branch  of  literature,  some  of  which  are 
out  of  print  and  scarce. 

Messrs.  Morgan  &  Scott,  Ltd..  find 
that  much  interest  is  being  taken  hi  their 
finely  illustrated  work  by  Miss  Geraldine 
Guiuess*:  "  Peru  :  Its  .Story,  People,  and 
Religion."  Prominent  men  of  all  shades 
of  opinion  have  written  in  enthusiastic 
terms  about  it. 

The  Price  of  The  Times 
and  its  Management 

For  some  time  past  there  have  been 
persistent  rumours  that  the  price  of 
The  Times  is  to  be  reduced  to  a  penny. 
As  this  is  a  matter  which  affects  a  great 
many  of  our  subscribers  at  home  and 
abroad  who  buy  The  Times  for  customers, 
we  think  that  they  will  be  glad  to  know- 
there  is  no  truth  whatever  in  the  rumour. 
No  change  in  price  is  contemplated. 

The  quality  of  paper  and  type  have 
both  been  recently  greatly  unproved,  and 
further  improvements  involving  large 
expenditure  are  in  course  of  execution. 

Another  equally  baseless  rumour  is  to 
the  effect  that  Mr.  C.  Moberly  Bell  is 
resigning  his  position  as  chief  manager  of 
The  Times,  or  that  he  contemplates  such 
a  step.  The  only  things  at  all  likely  to 
sever  Mr.  Bell's  long  connection  with 
The  Times  would  be  his  death  or  such  an 
illness  as  would  make  work  impossible — 
and  from  such  causes  for  resignation 
may  he,  in  the  one  case  for  many  years, 
and  in  the  other  for  ever,  be  exempt. 

Edinburgh  Book  Notes 

By  "  Edina  " 

Christmas,  with  all  its  looked-for  possi- 
bilities, has  come  and  gone.  We  leave  it 
behind  with  a  sigh,  for  it  has  no  longer 
the  delights  for  us  of  the  good  old  times. 
Then  it  was  possible  to  sell  a  few  nicely 
bound  sets  of  Dickens,  Thackeray,  Scott, 
George  Eliot,  and  the  other  favourite 
authors  ;  but  we  must  now  be  content 
if  we  have  turned  over  a  sufficient  quan- 
tity of  what  a  book  lover  the  other  day 
called  "  Dainty  Nothingnesses. " 

This  has  been  the  distinct  feature  of 
the  Christmas  trade  in  Edinburgh  for 
19O8.  Now,  I  do  not  mean  to  say  that 
we  ought  to  boycott  the  tabloid  literature 
which  has  become  a  craze,  especially  with 
ladies  ;  but  could  only  a  Gulliver  be  found 
whose  satire  would  bite  into  the  heart 
of  this  mannikinizing  age,  there  would 
be  hope  that  the  Lilliputian  ideas  of 
serving  out  the  brains  of  our  greatest 
literary  giants  would  have  an  end  and  a 
truly  noble  quest  for  the  Holy  Grail  of 
literary  endeavour  be  inspired. 

I  am  sure  that  all  members  of  the 
trade  whose  instincts  are  for  the  highest 
and  the  best  of  literature,  alike  in  physical 
and  decorative  qualities,  feel  that  we  can- 
not proceed  much  longer  along  these 
paths  which  have  been  the  fashionable 
promenade  of  the  would-be  bookish 
public  without  meeting  disaster. 

As  I  look  over  the  shelves  of  an 
ordinary  bookshop  I  see  plainly  who  has 
had  to  pay  for  all  the  cheap  reprints  of 
standard  writers  which  came  as  a  deluge 
with  the  introduction  of  the  cylinder 
press.  The  bookseller  has  paid  high  for 
tliis  public  boon  :  but  is  he  to  go  on 
paying  toll  for  an  ungrateful  public  ? 
The  problem  is  before  us.  and  on  the 
manner  we  meet  its  solution  depends  the 
future  well-being  of  the  retailer. 

We  have  to  reckon  with  the  things 
which  are.  but  we  must  also  guess 
shrewdly  the  things  which  are  yet  to  be. 
At  present  we  have  a  large  cult  which 
has,  as  its  first  rule,  that  its  members 


January  9,  1909 

The    Publishers'  Circular 


should  be  conversant  with  a  thousand 
and  one  authors  of  repute,  and  these 
members  have  to  sustain  their  reputation 
as  lovers  of  literature — good  literature — 
by  swallowing  all  the  pilule  nostrums 
which  bear  the  name  of  the  favourites  of 
culture — so-called.  Then,  to  appease 
their  appetite,  they  gobble  up  all  the 
printed  trash  which  issues  under  the 
name  of  fiction.  As  for  history,  it  must 
now  be  dressed  up  in  all  the  tawdryness  of 
secret  intrigue  and  social  scandal.  It 
then  forms  a  favourite  entree.  This 
must  be  followed  with  spicy  tartlets  and 
icings  of  dainty  hue  to  gloat  our  effemi- 
nate taste.  But  what  has  become  of  the 
roast  beef  and  the  haggis-fed  sons  of  the 
pen  ? 

They  have  not  ceased  to  exist.  There 
is  a  Carlyle  trudging  his  way  to  the 
centre  of  literary  greatness  who  is  not 
above  making  his  breakfast  on  a  bowlful 
of  oatmeal  porridge.  Look  out  for  him  ! 

I  looked  out  from  my  study  window 
and  thought  I  recognised  the  man  in  the 
figure  of  Lauchlan  Maclean  Watt,  as  he 
hurried  up  the  street ;  but  he  has  not 
yet  been  sickened  by  the  flesh  pots  of 
Egyptian  days.  He  shoots  straight,  he 
aims  high  ;  but  he  does  not  follow  up 
the  game.  He  must  needs  go  into  the 
desert  awhile.  Then  shall  we  see  him 
come  forth  in  his  strength,  clad  in  rough 
homespun  it  may  be,  but  muscular,  full 
of  action,  knowing  men  and  things  as 
they  really  are. 

"  Auld  Scotland  wants  nae  skinkhig 
ware  that  jaugs  in  luggies."  We  want 
something  tangible,  something  robust, 
something  toothsome,  something  "  kyte- 
riving  " — and  we  mean  to  have  it,  too. 
Behold  the  hour,  and  you  will  see  the 
man  !  There  is  a  Knox  for  every  refor- 
mation, there  is  a  Burns  for  every  heart 
sensation,  there  is  a  Scott  for  every 
re-creation,  there  is  a  Burton  for  our 
confirmation,  a  Stevenson  to  ring  sweet 
tones  of  jubilation. 

Few  readers  of  Stevenson  appear  to 
be  aware  that  the  secret  of  his  style 
(which  was  hailed  as  quite  original)  is 
common  also  to  that  contemporary  of 
Sir  Walter  Scott,  who  was  overshadowed 
by  the  greater  light — John  Gait.  It  was 
as  great  a  surprise  to  me  (as  it  was  to  an 
audience  of  American  ladies,  to  whom 
I  had  to  give  an  impromptu  lecture  on 
the  "  Beauties  of  Stevenson  ")  to  make 
this  discovery.  I  began  to  point  out  his 
intense  appreciation  of  contrast,  when 
I  recalled  a  similar  trait  in  the  earlier 
writer  ;  and,  referring  to  the  works  of 
Gait,  at  once  descried  that  Stevenson  had 
made  a  closer  acquaintance  with  him 
than  had  been  known  to  me. 

This  leads  me  to  observe  that  there 
being  nothing  new  under  the  sun,  we 
may  be  expecting  too  much  originality 
from  the  man  who  is  really  the  leader 
of  a  new  literary  era.  Originality  depends 
on  the  food  and  the  manner  of  its  diges- 
tion. This  is  really  the  secret  which 
underlies  literary  degeneracy— we  are 
suffering  from  Dyspepsia  Literarise. 

Among  the  contributors  to  Mr.  Eve- 
leigh  Nash's  new  Monthly  Magazine  will 
be  Rudyard  Kipling,  Conan  Doyle, 
Anthony  Hope,  Rider  Haggard,  Robert 
Hichens,  H.  A.  Vachell,  and  Halliwell 

Durham  Booksellers' 

MESSRS.  Andrews  &  Co.,  University 
publishers  and  booksellers,  Durham, 
celebrated  their  one  hundredth  anniver- 
sary on  Tuesday,  December  29th,  by 
entertaining  their  staff  to  dinner. 

This  old  established  firm  was  founded 
in  1808  by  George  Andrews  the  elder, 
and  remained  in  his  hands  for  many 
years.  At  his  death  the  business  was 
carried  on  by  his  son  and  daughter, 
George  and  Frances  Andrews.  Miss 
Frances  Andrews  afterwards  married 
Mr.  John  Henry  Le  Keux,  the  famous 
steel  engraver,  who  then  removed  (his 
engraving  business  from  London  to 
Durham,  and  became  a  partner  for 
upwards  of  thirty  years  in  the  firm  of 
Andrews  &  Co.  Mr.  Le  Keux  was  a 
personal  friend  of  Ruskin,  and  illustrated 
several  of  his  works,  notably  "  Modern 
Painters  "  and  "  Stones  of  Venice."  He 
also  taught  the  art  of  engraving  to  the 

Proprietor  of  Andrews  &  Co,  Durham 

late  Mr.  George  Allen,  Ruskin's  publisher, 
and,  indeed,  a  few  years  before  he  died 
presented  Mr.  Allen  with  all  his  engraving 
tools.  He  was  a  great  worker,  and  in 
his  life-time  produced  many  famous 
plates,  among  winch  were  the  well-known 
series,  "  The  Oxford  Almanack,"  Architec- 
tural works  by  Parker  &  Billing,  thirty- 
one  plates  for  a  large  work  on  Trondhjem 
Cathedral  for  the  Norwegian  Govern- 
ment, and  many  others.  He  was  one  of 
the  last  of  the  old  school  of  steel  engravers, 
and  with  him  has  almost  died  out  this 
beautiful  art,  killed  by  the  present  day 
demand  for  the  cheaper  and  quicker 
methods  of  modern  photography — a 
circumstance  much  to  be  regretted.  A 
few  months  before  liis  death  hi  February, 
1896,  the  business  was  purchased  by 
Mr.  Warnford  Smart,  who  was  at  that 
time  manager.  Since  then  it  has  grown 
considerably,  necessitating  the  removal 
to  larger  and  more  convenient  premises, 
and  even  still  further  extensions  until 
at  the  present  day  it  may  truly  be 
considered  one  of  the  finest  businesses 
in  the  North  of  England. 

Messrs.  Andrews  &  Co.  are  the- 
officially  appointed  publishers  and  book- 
sellers of  the  University  Calendar  and 
Examination  Papers.  They  are  also  the 
publishers  for  the  Surtees  Society,  and 
have  at  various  times  issued  other 
notable  works,  among  which  is  Billing's 
"►Antiquities  of  Durham  "  already 
referred  to. 

Staff  Dinner, 
Messrs.  E.  J.  Arnold  &  Son, 

The  firm's  twenty-third  annual  dinner 
to  the  Heads  of  Departments  and 
Travellers  of  this  well-known  school 
supply  house  and  publishing  firm  was 
held  at  the  Leeds  and  County  Liberal 
Club  on  New  Year's  night.  In  the 
absence  of  the  Chairman  of  the  Company, 
Mr.  E.  J.  Arnold,  who  was  slightly  in- 
disposed, the  chair  and  vice-chair  were 
taken  respectively  by  the  other  two 
Directors — Mr.  George  Arnold  and  Mr. 
H.  Wood.  Seventy-three  persons  sat 
down  to  a  first-rate  repast,  and  after  the 
loyal  toast  of  "  His  Majesty  the  King  " 
had  been  duly  honoured,  "  The  Company" 
was  proposed  by  Mr.  Tranter  in  an 
I  excellent  speech,  full  of  quiet  points  of 
j  humour,  and  responded  to  by  the  two 
J  Directors.  A  most  enjoyable  "  Smoker  " 
I  followed,  with  Mr.  J.  Robinson  as  Chair- 
man, all  the  items  of  songs  and  recitations 
being  provided  by  the  staff.  It  is  im- 
possible to  mention  all  who  contributed 
to  a  long  and  excellent  programme,  but 
the  introductory  pianoforte  duet  by 
Messrs.  Womack  and  Tinsdale  deserves 
special  mention.  The  humorous  singing 
of  "  The  Mesmerist,"  followed  by  "  Potts" 
as  an  encore,  of  Mr.  J.  H.  Gilmore 
(who  has  been  in  one  department  of 
the  firm  for  32  years  and  is  now 
manager  of  it)  literally  brought  down 
the  house.  This  "  old  hand  "  was 
followed  by  several  of  the  "  juniors,"  who 
entered  the  firm  as  boys  when  they  left 
school,  and  have  now  reached  positions 
of  importance.  Amongst  these  may  be 
mentioned — Bass  songs  by  Messrs.  W. 
Hornby  and  J.  Tinsdale,  and  comic  songs 
by  Mr.  E.  Charlton.  "  The  Midship- 
mite  "  was  excellently  given  by  Mr.  C. 
Wellings,  an  "  old  hand,"  who  has  been 
with  the  firm  above  24  years,  and  Mr.  T. 
Stones,  another  "  old  stager,"  sang  "  The 
Irish  Emigrant "  with  much  feeling. 
Many  others,  who  are  now  on  the  staff, 
but  have  not  spent  all  their  business 
career  with  the  firm,  contributed  items, 
which  gave  much  pleasure  to  those

Sold  by  Messrs.  Casseu,. 
In  our  issue  of  December  19th,  we 
mentioned  that  there  were  less  than 
70  sets  of  the  £10  10s.  edition  of  the 
Pentland  "  Stevenson  "  left,  out  of  an 
edition  of  fifteen  hundred  sets.  By 
December  31st,  Messrs.  Cassell  had  sold 
every  set,  and  the  price  to  the  public- 
is  now  12  guineas.  This  is  not  so  bad 
for  that  much  abused  party  A.D.  1908.

expect  from  John  Walker  &  Co.  but 
originality  and  taste  ?  It  is  worth 
mentioning  too  that  the  menu  was  printed 
in  English,  an  innovation  which  was  much 
appreciated.  In  short,  we  must  con- 
gratulate all  concerned  on  another  very 
successful  and  enjoyable  f miction,  and 
we  feel  sure  that  the  expressions  of 
respect  and  good  feeling  heard  on

nection with  the  firm. 

Second  Annual  Dinner  of 

the  International 
Association  of  Antiquarian 

As  already  announced,  the  second  annual 
dinner  of  the  Association  will  take  place 
at  the  Criterion  on  January  13th.  The 
President  (Mr.  B.  D.  Maggs)  will  take  the 
chair,  and  among  the  guests  will  be  Dr. 
G.  K.  Fortescue  (Keeper  of  the  Printed 
Books,  British  Museum),  Mr.  Barwick 
(Reading  Room,  British  Museum),  and 
Mr.  Herbert  Bailey  (Editor  of  The 
Cennoissem).  The  Chairman  will  pro- 
pose the  toasts  of  "  The  King  "  and 
"  The  Oueen  and  Royal  Family  "  (with 
musical  honours),  and  "  Our  Guests." 
Mr.  Myers  will  propose  the  toast  of  "  The 
Ladies,"  and  Mr.  Tregaskis  will  reply  on 
their  behalf.  Mr.  Wesley  will  propose 
the  toast  of  "  The  Trade  Journals." 
Miss  Kathleen  Kelly  (Mrs.  Henry  Stevens) 
will  give  a  sketch  under  the  title  of 
"  Songs  at  the  Piano,"  and  there  will  be 
songs,  humorous  and  other,  by  Mr.  E- 
Pontis  Bines,  Mr.  Best,  and  Mr.  Harry 
King.  The  evening  will,  in  fact,  be  fully 
occupied  from  start  to  finish.  Tickets 
(6s.  each)  may  be  obtained  from  Mr. 
Karslake,  35,  Pond  Street,  Hampstead.  j 
Ladies  are  specially  invited  to  join,  as  j 
last  year.  Evening  dress  is  to  be  optional.  J 
It  is  hoped  that  many  country  members  1 
will  follow  the  example  of  Mr.  William 
Downing,  of  Birmingham,  who  is  coming 
up,  for  the  second  year  in  succession, 
specially  to  attend  the  dinner. 

in  the  days  that  yet  remain  to  him.  Mr. 
Farlow  Wilson  suitably  responded.  He 
rejoiced  to  know  that  the  fortunes  of  the 
Yard  were  now  in  the  hands  of  young 
men,  who  were  bent  on  restoring  the 
firm  to  its  former  prosperity,  and  he  had 
no  doubt  they  would  succeed. 

The  toast  of  "  The  House  of  Cassell  " 
was  proposed  by  Mr.  Walter  Smith,  the 
Chief  Editor,  and  responded  to  by  Sir 
Clarence  Smith,  Chairman  of  the  Direc- 
tors. In  replying  to  the  toast  of  his 
health,  proposed  by  Mr.  Thomas  Young, 
manager  of  the  Advertisement  Depart- 
ment, Mr.  Spurgeon  said  that  the  year 
closed  hopefully  for  the  business.  Al- 
though 1908  had  been  a  very  trying  year, 
the  outlook  was  full  of  promise.  He 
congratulated  the  travellers  on  the  ex- 
cellent work  they  had  done  during  the 
year  and  he  had  no  doubt  they  would  be 
still  more  successful  in  1909. 

An  Amusing  Anecdote  of 
Dr.  Johnson 

A  WEST  of  England  subscriber  kindly 
sends  us  the  following  anecdote,  which 
he  says  is  told  as  related  by  Peter  Pindar 
(Dr.  Walcot)  in  a  number  of  The  Bath 
Chronicle  published  in  1796.  Se  non  e 
vero,  e  ben  Irovato. 

"  When  Johnson  lodged  at  Kettle 
Hall  in  the  University  of  Oxford  at  a 
Mr.  Thompson's,  a  cabinet-maker,  the 
maid  by  an  unfortunate  mistake  brought 
him  one  day  a  chemise  of  Mrs.  Thomp- 
son's to  put  on  instead  of  his  shirt. 
Contemplating  on  nothing  but  ramblers, 
idlers  and  colossal  dictionaries,  he  shoved 
his  arms  and  head  through  into  the 
lady's  linen  before  he  discovered  his 

"  '  Who  has*  cut  off  the  sleeves  of  my 
shirt  ?  Who  has  cut  off  the  sleeves  of 
my  shirt  ?  '  exclaimed  the  enraged  and 
hampered  moralist  with  stentorian  voci- 
feration, dancing  and  tugging  and  foam- 
ing for  freedom. 

"The  roar  brought  up  poor,  trembling 
Mrs.  Thompson,  who,  with  most  con- 
summate delicacy,  shutting  her  two 
chaste  eyes,  slipped  her  hand  into  the 
room  and  delivered  her  giant  guest  from 
his  enchanted  castle." 

John  Walker  &  Co.'s  Annual 
Dinner  at  the  Hotel  Cecil 

"  The  New  Year  would  not  seem  to 
have  properly  started,  nor  the  Christmas 
season  to  have  properly  finished,  without 
John  Walker  &  Co.'s  Annual  Dinner." 
This  remark,  made  by  one  of  the  visitors 
in  his  speech  on  Saturday  last,  seems  to 
fittingly  indicate  the  characteristics  of 
this  eagerly  anticipated  function.  Once 
more  it  is  our  pleasure  to  chronicle  the 
complete  success  of  this  well-known  firm 
hi  its  social,  as  in  its  commercial,  under- 
takings. Under  the  presidency  of  Mr. 
John  Walker  (than  whom  no  more 
popular  or  genial  Chairman  could  be 
imagined),  some  eighty  gentlemen  en- 
joyed a  banquet  served  in  the  Hotel 
Cecil's  best  manner.  After  the  usual 
loyal  toasts  had  been  duly  honoured,  the 
Chairman  read  many  congratulatory 
telegrams  from  various  absent  friends, 
including  a  "Marconi  wireless"  from 
Mr.  Whitlock  (one  of  the  Directors),  who 
was  en  route  for  the  United  States.  The 
speeches  were  of  the  usual  hearty  spon- 
taneous and  eloquent  character  to  which 
visitors  to  these  banquets  have  been  long 
accustomed.  The  toast  of  "  The  Firm  " 
was  proposed  by  Dr.  Macdonald  Brown, 
and  responded  to  by  Mr.  Walker,  who 
showed  in  his  speech  no  trace  of  pessimism 
— for  the  slump  in  trade  as  indicated  by 
the  Government  returns  seems  to  have 
forgotten  to  pay  an  unwelcome  visit  to 
Warwick  Lane.  "  Indeed,"  said  Mr. 
Walker,  "  we  have  little  to  repine  over, 
and  much  to  be  thankful  for."  Mr.  Jolm 
Walker,  Junr.,  gave  "The  Travellers," 
and  caused  much  laughter  and  applause 
at  the  deft  way  in  which  he  described  the 
characteristics  of  each.  Mr.  Dixon  re- 
sponded in  a  speech  of  great  ability  and 
humour,  and  was  ably  seconded  by  Mr. 
Hess.  Mr.  Barringer  then  proposed 
"  The  Staff,"  and  after  his  usual  jocular 
introduction,  sincerely  thanked  them  for 
their  continued  loyalty  and  devotion,  and 
in  coupling  this  toast  with  the  name  of 
Mr.  Rowe,  he  alluded  to  the  fine  new 
factory  recently  erected  in  Camberwell, 
and  of  which  Mr.  Rowe  is  the  Manager. 
The  response  to  this  was  of  a  sincere  and 
genuine  nature,  and  brought  into  great 
prominence  the  admirable  feeling  in 
existence  amongst  all  sections  in  Far- 
ringdon  House.  In  the  regretted  absence 
of  Mr.  Dow,  the  Chairman  called  upon 
Mr.  Barringer  to  propose  "  The  Visitors," 
which  he  did  in  his  usual  cheery  style. 
The  last  toast,  that  of  "The  Chairman," 
was  proposed  by  Mr.  J.  W.  Johnston,  who 
spoke  of  his  long  business  connection  with 
the  firm,  and  mentioned  that  on  his  late 
trip  to  the  States,  where  he  went  at  the 
invitation  of  the  American  Stationers' 
Society  as  a  delegate  from  the  London 
Stationers'  Society,  he  heard  the  name 
of  Mr.  John  Walker  on  every  side,  and  the 
fact  of  his  friendship  with  Mr.  Walker 
was  an  "  open  sesame  "  to  all  desirable 
quarters.  Mr.  Walker's  response  was 
received  with  great  enthusiasm.  The 
proceedings  were  further  enlivened  with 
music,  songs  and  recitations,  contributed 
by  Messrs.  Carr  Evans,  Quitter,  Burrows, 
Storey,  Sinclair,  Mantell,  and  others, 
whose  efforts  were  much  appreciated. 
We  must  not  omit  a  word  of  praise  to  the 
very  elegant  and  highly  original  menu 

Cassell  &  Co.'s  Annual 
I  raveller's  Luncheon 

The  Annual  Travellers'  Luncheon  of 
Messrs.  Cassell  was  held  on  December 
31st  at  De  Keyser's  Hotel,  under  the 
chairmanship  of  Mr.  Arthur  Spurgeon, 
the  General  Manager.  The  Chairman,  in 
proposing  the  health  of  "  The  Father  of 
the  Yard,"  said  that  Mr.  Farlow  Wilson's 
official  connection  with  the  firm  ter- 
minated with  the  close  of  the  year  after  a 
service  extending  over  more  than  half  a 
century.  During  the  greater  portion  of 
that  period  he  had  been  manager  of  the 
printing  department  and  had  rendered 
true  and  faithful  service.  He  retired  into 
private  life  with  the  hearty  goodwill  of 
all  his  colleagues.  A  special  resolution, 
engrossed  on  vellum,  was  recently  passed 
by  the  Board  of  Directors  expressing 
their  appreciation  of  the  valuable  service 
Mr.  Wilson  had  rendered  to  the  firm 
during  his  long  connection  with  it.  They 
all  wished  him  much  health  and  happhiess 

Canon  Farrar  and  the 

Years  afterwards,  on  the  invitation  of  a 
friend,  I  visited  Westminster  Abbey  with 
a  party  from  a  working-man's  club  in 
Solio,  when  we  were  shown  round  by 
Canon  Farrar.  After  the  Canon  had 
talked  to  us  about  Major  Andre,  whose 
monument  is  in  the  south  aisle,  a  little 
tailor,  who  was  one  of  the  party,  whis- 
pered to  me,  "  The  worthy  Dean  is 
very  interesting,  but  not  very  correct 
in  his  'istory."  Later  we  had  tea  in  the 
hall  of  Westminster  School,  and  my 
friend  said  a  few  nice  words  of  thanks  to 
Canon  Farrar.  Up  jumped  the  little 
tailor  and  said,  "  I  'ad  'oped  to  'ave  'ad 
the  pleasure  of  proposing  the  'ealth  of 
the  worthy  Dean  myself  ;  in  fact,  when 
Colonel    began  I  felt  quite  non-

For  many  years  Charles  Enschede,  of  the  house  of  Joh.  Enschede  en  Zonen,  of  Haarlem,  where  he  personally  directs  the  type-foundry, 
has  given  himself  up  to  researches  in  his  rich  archives.  Although  he  knew  of  the  existence  of  many  curious  varieties  in  his  collection  of  old 
matrices,  he  was  surprised  to  discover  a  mass  of  material  which  was  valuable  as  a  history  of  the  arts  of  founding  and  printing  in  the  Low 
Countries.  He  conceived  the  idea  of  pnblishing  the  results  of  his  work,  adding  to  them  the  necessary  commentaries  and  offering  them  in 
a  well-arranged  volume  to  the  book-collector  and  the  historian.  The  execution  of  this  project  met  with  great  difficulties.  One  can  easily 
understand  the  great  expense  necessary  for  the  type-founding  and  the  preliminary  work  for  printing  372  different  examples,  of  which  the  matrices 
date  as  follows:  6  of  the  15th  Century,  9  of  the  16th,  52  of  the  17th  and  305  of  the  i8th.  The  study  of  each  example  brought  a  crowd  of  questions 
which  were  easier  to  ask  than  to  answer.  It  was  thus  that  the  work  of  which  the  original  aim  was  limited  to  the  typographical  collection  of  the 
house  of  Joh.  Enschede  en  Zonen,  acquired  a  more  general  character  and  became  more,  as  the  title  indicates,  a  historical  notice  of  the  type  foundries 
and  their  work  in  the  Low  Countries  from  the  15th  to  the  19th  centuries. 

"Talks  about  Old  London  " 

Memories  of  Charles  Dickens 

What  an  immense  circulation  the  Evening 
News  must  have  ;  and  it  deserves  it,  for 
no  paper  gives  the  public  a  better 
account  of  everything  of  any  public 
interest ;  it  is  a  great  power  in  London 
and  the  South  of  England.  Just  over 
two  years  ago  the  Evening  News  hit  upon 
the  happy  idea  of  giving  every  evening, 
under  the  heading  of  ' '  Talks  about 
London,"  the  reminiscences  of  some 
living  veteran  who  can  tell  us  of  life  as  it 
was  in  London  half  a  century  or  so  ago. 
People  in  every  walk  of  London  life  are 
giving  their  experiences,  and  we  hope 
they  will  continue  to  do  so.  Nowhere 
else  is  to  be  found  such  information, 
and  we  should  tliink  there  would  be  a 
sale  for  one  or  two  volumes  made  up 
from  these  "  Talks,"  which  will  be  in- 
valuable material  for  some  future 

In  the  1 08th  article  of  the  Series,  that 
for  January  2nd,  "  J.  FT  W.,"  a  regular 
playgoer  for  over  half  a  century,  chats 
about  notable  people  he  has  met  in  the 
literary  and  theatrical  world. 

Remembered  Dr.  Johnson 

"  My  grandmother,  who  lived  to  be 
ninety-six,  formed  an  interesting  link 
with  the  past.  She  knew  Dr.  Jolrnson  and 
his  famous  friend  Mrs.  Titrate. 

"  I  remember  her  describing  the  great 
lexicographer  as  '  a  most  disagreeable 
man,'  while  her  opinion  of  Mrs.  Thrale 

was  summed  up  in  the  words  '  a  most 
charming  woman  with  a  very  bad 

Week-ends    ax    Gad's    Hill  Place 

"  I  was  educated  at  King's  College 
School,  where  Charles  Dickens,  the  eldest 
son  of  the  great  novelist,  was  one  of  my 

"  Occasionally  I  spent  a  week-end  at 
Gad's  Hill  Place,  where  Dickens  at  the 
time  was  engaged  in  writing,  I  believe, 
'  Martin  Chuzzlewit. ' 

"  Dickens  made  an  extraordinary  im- 
pression on  my  boyish  mind.  He  seemed 
to  possess  a  weird  power  over  everyone  he 
met ;  there  was  something  oddly  elec- 
trical about  Mm.  One  felt  instinctively 
that  one  was  in  the  presence  of  no 
ordinary  man.  To  me  he  was  extremely 
generous  hi  the  matter  of  half-sovereigns. 

"  A  most  estimable  young  man  was 
Sydney  Dickens,  another  son  of  the 
novelist.  He  was  a  lieutenant  hi  the 
Navy,  and  was  drowned  hi  the  Red  Sea. 

"  He  and  I  spent  a  Christmas  Eve  at 
the  Polygraphic  Hall,  where  Wilbaja 
Frickell,  the  greatest  conjurer  of  the  day, 
was  appearing,  The  Hall  subsequently 
became  Toole's  Theatre,  and  stood  on  the 
site  now  occupied  by  Charing  Cross 

The  Great  Globe 

"  In  the  days  of  which  I  speak  there 
was  an  extraordmary  place  of  entertain- 
ment in  Leicester  Square.  It  was  called 
'  The  GreatjGlobe.' 

"  It  occupied  the  whole  of  the  space 
now  an  enclosed  garden.  '  The  Great 
Globe  '  was  hollow,  and,  standing  on  a 
platform,  the  visitor  beheld  panoramic 
views  of  different  parts  of  the  world. 
The  present  statue  of  Shakespeare  is  on 
the  identical  spot  where  the  platform 

"  A  map-seller  named  Wylde  was  the 
proprietor  of  -  The  Great  Globe.'  How 
he  managed  to  obtain  permission  to  put 
up  such  a  monstrous  thing  in  the  middle 
of  Leicester  Square  was  a  mystery, 
'  except  that  he  was  a  Member  of  Par- 

"  Great  have  been  the  changes  in 
theatreland  within  my  recollection  When 
I  was  young  there  were  not  more  than 
half  a  dozen  theatres  in  the  West  End. 
Now  there  must  be  about  twenty-five. 

"  And  as  theatreland  has  changed,  so 
have  the  tastes  and  habits  of  the  play- 
i  goers.  The  '  gods  '  no  longer  sit  in  their 
shirt  sleeves  or  bring  with  them  bottled 
ale.  or  shy  oranges  at  each  other.  Their 
sedateness  is  wonderful  to  behold. 

"  The  serious  playgoer  of  to-day  is 
more  intellectual  than  liis  predecessors  ; 
but  an  element  of  superficiality  pervades 
the  ranks  of  the  younger  people.  They 
want  only  theatrical  '  kickshaws.'  " 

It  is  always  the  young  who  are — 
I  young.

Booksellers'  Catalogues 

Among  the  duties  to  be  discharged  by 
booksellers  or  their  assistants,  none 
perhaps  are  more  important  or  require 
more  skill,  intelligence  and  experience 
than  those  attending  the  compilation  of 
a  catalogue.  In  this  connection  one  is 
surprised  that  no  bibliographer  sets 
about  to  draft  a  few  simple  rules  for  their 
guidance.  Yet  the  subject  is  not  un- 
worthy of  notice.  Indeed,  experience 
proves  that  a  carefully  written  catalogue 
will  bring  in  more  orders  more  quickly 
than  one  in  which  the  bookbuyer  has 
difficulty  hi  ascertaining  whether  it  con- 
tains the  volume  he  is  hunting  for.  It 
may  be  said  that  we  have  catalogue  rules 
in  plenty  ;  but  these  have  been  written 
more  for  the  librarian  and  the  specialist 
than  for  the  bookseller. 

Once  upon  a  time  it  was  thought  that 
there  was  notliing  easier  than  to  make  a 
catalogue.  All  you  had  to  do  was  to 
transfer  the  titles  of  books  to  paper,  add 
the  prices  and  dispatch  the  whole  to  the 
printer.  But  those  who  are  acquainted 
with  the  subject  realise  that  Sheridan's 
joke  about  "  easy  writing  bemg  damned 
hard  reading,"  is  specially  applicable  to 
work  of  that  land. 

The  booksellers'  cataloguer  must  de- 
termine first  of  all  whether  the  volume 
he  is  about  to  catalogue  should  be 
entered  under  the  subject  of  which  it 
treats  or  under  its  author.  This  is  one 
of  the  most  difficult  questions  which  it 
is  his  duty  to  answer,  and  upon  his 
decision  rests  the  usefulness  of  the  cata 
logue.  In  this  respect  a  careful,  in- 
telligent, and  widely-read  assistant  will 
be  of  the  utmost  service  to  his  employer. 
He  should  avoid  such  general  subject 
headings  as  Theology,  History,  Philology, 
Literary  Biography,  &c.  I  have  before 
me  a  bookseller's  catalogue,  divided  into 
subjects,  one  of  which  is  General  Litera- 
ture occupying  7 1  pages  !  There  is  a 
limit  to  human  endurance  even  in  the 
task  of  perusing  a  catalogue  of  second- 
hand books.  Imagine  for  a  moment  the 
trouble  and  waste  of  time  involved  in 
ascertaining  what  this  catalogue  contains 
on,  say,  Scottish  Ballads  or  Wit  and 
Humour.  Yet,  although  it  has  a  subject-  ] 
heading  Bibliography,  I  find  Growall's  j 
"  Three  Centuries  of  English  Book  Trade 
Bibliography,"  Madan's  "  Books  in  Manu-  i 
script."  andMacray's  "Annals  of  the  Bod- 
leian Library  ' '  under  General  ^Literature  !  j 

This  is  an  easy  method  of  making  a  ! 
catalogue,  but  it  does  not  commend  itself  | 
to  the  bookbuyer.    More  definite  subject- 
headings  are  required.     The  assistant 
whose  duty  it  is  to  prepare  the  catalogue 
should  find  out  the^exact  subject  of 

which  the  book  treats,  and  decide 
whether  or  not  it  is  of  more  importance 
than  the  author.  Nothing  but  a  wide 
acquaintance  with  literature  and  a  careful 
study  of  the  best  bibliographies  will 
enable  him  to  do  this.  Where  there  is 
any  doubt  a  cross  reference  may  save  his 
clients  considerable  trouble. 

Cross  references  are  not  used  so  fre- 
quently as  they  ought  to  be.  A  book 
which  might  be  entered  under  the  subject 
or  under  the  author  should  be  put  under 
the  former  with  a  cross-reference  from 
1  the  latter.  Or,  in  the  case  of  an  author, 
some  of  whose  books  should  be  entered 
under  the  subject  of  which  they  treat 
and  others  under  his  surname,  a  cross 
reference  will  be  very  useful.  Take,  for 
example,  P.  G.  Hamerton  ;  some  of  his 
books  would  be  entered  under  Art,  and  a 
few  under  Hamerton,  P.  G.  Clearly,  then, 
if  a  bookseller  desires  his  clients  to  know 
what  books  he  has  by  that  author,  he 
must  insert  after  his  name  in  the  Art 
section  the  entry  See  also  Hamerton, 
P.  G.,  and  after  his  surname  See  also  Art. 

When  the  cataloguer  has  decided 
what  form  the  entry  is  to  take,  he  will 
naturally  turn  his  attention  to  the 
author's  surname.  In  many  cases  it  will 
be  easily  disposed  of,  but  occasionally 
he  will  experience  some  difficulty,  and  a 
few  hints  may  not  be  out  of  place.  As 
regards  the  treatment  of  compound 
names,  librarians  do  not  seem  to  be  in 
agreement.  Mr.  J.  Henry  Quinn  says— 
"  In  the  case  of  English  compound 
names  the  best  course  to  adopt  is  to  give 
the  entries  under  the  last  name  in  all 
cases  "  (Manual  of  Library  Cataloguing, 
page  46),  while  Mr.  James  Duff  Brown, 
in  his  "  Manual  of  Practical  Biblio- 
j  graphy,"  page  102,  writes — "  All  com- 
j  pound  names  to  be  entered  mider  the 
first  word  with  references  from  the  second 
or  other  words."  In  dealing  with  com- 
pound names  stereotyped  uniformity 
is  not  always  to  be  recommended,  but 
one  or  other  of  the  foregoing  rules  should 
be  adopted  and  rigidly  adhered  to.  Or, 
better  still,  the  Booksellers'  Association 
might  take  the  matter  in  hand  and  fix  a 
rule.  More  uniformity  may  be  observed 
in  treating  surnames  with  a  prefix.  All 
English  surnames  beginning  with  a 
prefix  (D\  De,  Le,  Mac,  O',  Van,  &c.) 
must  be  entered  under  such  prefix. 

There  is  a  difference  of  opinion  re- 
garding the  treatment  of  prefixes  to 
foreign  surnames,  but  whatever  rule  is 
adopted  should  be  conscientiously 

In  some  catalogues  the  books  are 
over-described,  while  in  others  they  are 
under-described.  5f||.  It  ■  must  |» be  remem- 
bered that  a  catalogue  of  second-hand 
books  is  not  and  ought  not  to  be  a 
bibliography.  The  labour  properly  ex- 
pended on  the  latter  would  be  useless  on 
the  former.  A  bookseller  should  describe 
his  stock  briefly,  clearly  and  accurately, 
having  in  view  that  other  matters  in- 
valuable to  the  literary  student  and  the 
bibliophile  are  quite  out  of  place  in  his 
catalogue.  The  object  of  the  catalogue 
is  to  sell  the  books  and  to  sell  them  by 
fair  and  intelligent  representations.  Any 
special  description  is  best  given  in  a 
separate  note  set  in  smaller  type.  In 
this  note  it  may  be  mentioned  whether 
there  is  a  bookplate.

Publishers'  Circular 


Booksellers  differ  to  some  extent  in 
regard  to  the  order  in  which  they  enu- 
merate the  features  of  their  books,  and  as 
regards  this  point  it  is  inadvisable  to 
lay  down  any  hard  and  fast  rule.  Of 
course,  the  number  of  the  item  or  lot 
will  come  first,  and  be  followed  either  by 
the  subject  or  the  surname  of  the  author 
with  his  Cliristian  name  or  the  initials 
of  it.  The  other  particulars  might  be 
given  thus  : — ( 1 )  Full  or  condensed  title 
of  the  book  ;  (2)  number  of  volumes  if 
more  than  one  ;  (3)  whether  maps,  illus- 
trations or  other  insets ;  (4)  style  of 
binding;  (5)  condition  of  the  book 
(unless  it  is  intimated  on  the  title-page 
that  all  books  are  in  "  good,  sound,  clean 
condition  ")  ;  (6)  the  size  ;  (7)  the  price  ; 

(8)  place  of  publication  (excluding  Lon- 
don,   which   is   generally   understood)  ; 

(9)  the  date. 

The  front  or  title-page  of  the  cata- 
logue ought  to  give  a  brief  description 
of  the  contents  of  the  publication. 
Some  bookbuyers  do  not  go  beyond  the 
title-page,  and  if  it  does  not  suggest  any- 
thing in  their  line  they  destroy  the  whole 
catalogue.  A  fair  amount  of  skill  and 
ingenuity  can  be  displayed  hi  the  com- 
position of  the  title-page.  Briefly,  it 
should  note  all  the  important  subjects 
and  authors  mentioned  in  the  catalogue, 
and  be  followed  with  particulars  of  the 
method  employed  in  its  compilation. 

Catalogue  readers  are  usually  busy 
men  who  have  acquired  the  habit  of 
skimming  over  pages  with  lightning 
rapidity,  and  the  booksellers  would  do 
well  to  have  some  uniform  method  of 
cataloguing  their  books.

Australia  Bombards  U.S. 
Battleship  Fleet  with 
Post  Cards 

Australia's  enthusiasm  over  the  recent 
visit  of  the  United  States  battleship  fleet 
broke  forth  in  many  ways,  including 
elaborate  post  cards  commemorating  the 

Many  of  the  postcards  show  careful 
and  ingenious  designs,  in  which  the  inter- 
twined American  and  Australian  flags 
are  the  central  feature.  There  are  also 
coloured  representations  of  the  battle- 
sliips,  pictures  of  Uncle  Sam,  with  verses 
and  welcoming  mottoes.  Two  of  them 
bear  the  words  and  music  of  "  Hail 
Columbia  "  and  "  Yankee  Doodle."  and 
one  of  the  most  elaborate  has  the  follow- 
ing verse  : 

Welcome,  brave  kinsmen 
From  o'er  the  broad  ocean, 
Hearts  warm  with  friendship 

Extend  the  glad  hand. 
Speaking  the  tongue  of  your 
Own  mother  country, 
Brothers,  not  strangers, 

You'll  find  in  our  land. 

Others  have  legends  such  as  "  Good 
wishes  from  the  land  of  the  Golden 
Fleece  to  the  Stars  and  Stripes,"  "  Aus- 
tralia Greets  America,"  &c. 

Mention  the  "  P.C."— Our  readers  who  order  books, 
&c  ,  they  seementioned  oradvertised  in  Tiik  PUBLISHER'S 
Circular  wi  Idouta  great  service  if  they  will  mention 
the  fact  to  the  Publishers  and  Wholesale  Agents 

Sir  Walter  Scott  and 

Writing  from  Edinburgh  to  Mrs. 
Clephane,  in  1818,  Scott  says  : — 

"  Our  principal  amusement  here  is 
Blackwood's  Magazine,  which  is  very 
clever,  very  rash,  very  satirical,  and, 
what  is  rather  uncommon  nowadays 
when  such  superlatives  are  going  in — very 
aristocratical  and  Pittite.  The  con- 
ductors are  John  Wilson  and  John  Gibson 
Eockhart.  The  former,  well  known  by 
his  poems,  is  very  clever  but  somewhat 
whimsical.  Eockhart  is  a  very  clever 
fellow,  well  informed  in  ancient  and 
modern  lore,  has  very  good  maimers,  and 
is,  I  think,  likely  to  make  a  very  dis- 
tinguished figure  in  society.  They  have 
made  themselves  hated,  but  at  the  same 
time  feared,  by  the  Edinburgh  Whigs, 
who  are  so  much  accustomed  to  have  all 
the  satire  and  fun  their  own  way  that 
they  stare  a  little  at  finding  their  own 
batteries  occupied  and  turned  against 
them.  I  hate  personal  satire  myself — it 
is  a  clumsy  weapon  and  seldom  fails  to 
recoil  on  those  who  use  it.  But  yet  those 
who  have  set  the  example  in  such  a  kind 
of  warfare  are  not  entitled  to  consider 
themselves  as  ill-used  when  met  by 
sharpshooters  of  their  own  description." 
— From  ' '  Some  Betters  of  Sir  Walter 
Scott,"  in  Blackwood's  Magazine,  the 
writer  of  which  makes  it  clear  that  the 
real  Editor  of  the  magazine  was  always 
William  Blackwood. 

Dr.  W.  Robertson  Nicoll 
on  "  The  Press ' ' 

The  Rev.  W.  Robertson  Nicoll,  EE.D.' 
Editor  of  The  British  Weekly,  is  to  give 
an  address  on  "  The  Press,  Past  and 
Future,"  at  the  Conversazione  of  the 
Edinburgh  and  District  Branch  of  the 
Newsagents',  Booksellers'  and  Stationers' 
National  Union,  to  be  held  on  January 
22nd,  hi  the  Edinburgh  Cafe,  70,  Princes 
Street,  Edinburgh,  when  Mr.  J.  B. 
Fairgrieve,  President  of  the  Branch,  will 
preside.  We  intended  to  have  added 
somewhere  in  the  above  sentence  that 
Dr.  Nicoll  must  be  a  very  clever  man 
if  he  can  find  anything  new  to  say  on 
that  subject,  but  the  length  of  the  title 
of  the  Union  took  our  breath  away. 
Fortunately  the  doctor  is  a  very  clever 
man,  and  a  very  popidar  and  greatly 
respected  one  also,  which  is  of  more 
importance  still.  We  understand  that 
the  Bord  Provost  and  the  Hon.  Bord 
Guthrie  have  promised  to  be  present.  A 
good  musical  programme  has  been 
arranged,  and  among  the  speakers  will  be 
Mr.  William  Ward,  of  Eondon. 

A  Patent  Bore  Constrictor 

An  American  Syndicate  is  to  bring  out 
a  new  patent  wireless  bore  constrictor 
for  use  in  legislative  assemblies,  at  public 
meetings,  in  churches,  &c.  All  the 
audience  has  to  do  is  to  look  at  a  dial 
and  wish,  and  as  soon  as  the  wishes  that 
a  speaker  should  stop  exceed  in  number 
those  for  his  going  on,  he  automatically 
absquatulates.  It  is  expected  that  the 
average  duration  of  human  life  will  be 
considerably  increased. 

Men  of  the  Covenant.* 

A  Brief  for  the  Dogged  Fighters  for 
Freedom  in  Church  and  State 

It  is  always  pleasant  to  find  a  worthy 
book  has  passed  into  a  second  edition, 
and  Dr.  Alexander  Smellie's  "  Men  of  the 
Covenant,"  is  a  very  worthy  book.  It 
is  also  always  a  pleasant  thing  to  find  an 
author  writing  thus  of  his  publisher  : — 
"  I  am  so  deep  in  my  publisher's 
debt  that  I  can  discover  no  language 
that  will  properly  express  my  obliga- 
tion ;    it  was  he  who  conceived  this 
Edition  de  Buxe,  in  which  you  see  on 
Japanese  vellum  the  presentments  of 
men  and  women  who  wandered  in 
deserts,  and  hi  mountains,  and  hi  dens 
and  caves  of  the  earth." 
In  his  Preface  to  the  first  edition, 
dated  November,  1903,  Dr.  Smellie  says 
with  reference  to  his  championship  of  the 
cause  of  the  Covenanters  that  he  only 
wishes  he  had  the  "  great  language  and 
shining  gifts  "  of  Mr.  Bang,  Mr.  Mathic- 
son,  and  Mr.  Millar,  who  have  "  done  so 
much  to  glorify  those  who  upheld  the 
Royal  prerogative   and   the  Episcopal 
Rule."    But  if  those  "  dogged  fighters  for 
freedom  in  Church  and  State,"  whose 
biographies  are  given  more  or  less  fully 
in  these  handsome  volumes,  could  have 
any  say  hi  the  matter,  they  would  cry 
"  God  be  praised  "  that  the  historian  of 
their  lives  and  "  martyrdoms  "  are  not 
those  but  this.    Although  an  enthusiast 
for  the  Men  of  the  Covenant,  believing 
them  to  have  been  "  incontestably  right." 
Dr.  Smellie  hopes  he  has  never  been 
conspicuously  unfair  to  their  opponents. 
It  is  a  qualification  which  may  or  may 
not   be   accepted ;    of   course,    all  his 
martyrs  are  on  one  side,  and  if  their 
cause  had  triumphed  the  boot  which 
pinched  so  terribly  might  have  been  on 
the  other  foot. 

It  is  incontestable  that  the  Doctor 
has  written  a  most  interesting  work — 
where  possible  he  lets  his  men  and  women 
speak  for  themselves,  and  that,  as 
Boswell  discovered,  is  the  secret  of  a 
living  biography.  There  are  many  de- 
lightful touches,  not  a  little  quiet  humour, 
but  the  burden  of  the  story  is  of  tragical 
parting  and  bloody  death  met  daunt- 
lessly  and  welcomed  as  the  gateway  of 
the  glorious  life.  It  is  well  that  the 
history  of  such  men  and  women  should  be 
written  by  one  who,  like  them,  has  no 

The  excellent  illustrations  are  in  a 
style  hi  admirable  keeping  with  the 
nature  of  the  work — nothing  delicate  or 
cavalier.  Stern  black  and  white  un- 
compromising cuts — in  which  you  can 
trace  every  hair  hi  Mr.  Scott  Rankin's 
heads,  every  stone  in  Miss  Pike's  Kirks.

Book  Frauds 

The  thanks  of  the  whole  trade  are  due  to 
"  The  Kingsgate  Press  "  for  its  prose- 
cution of  Frank  Parkinson,  a  clerk,  who 
obtained  books  by  fraud,  by  writing 
letters  in  the  names  of  "  The  Hon.  R. 
Gort  "  and  "  The  Rev.  J.  Drysmere  of 
the  connection,"  and  others.  Parkinson, 
it  appears,  has  for  some  time  been  in  the 
habit  of  using  various  addresses  (chiefly 
empty  houses)  in  different  parts  of 
London,  ordering  copies  of  new  books 
from  booksellers  and  not  paying  for  them, 
and  it  is  entirely  due  to  the  smartness  of 
the  chief  lady  assistant  at  "  The  Kings- 
gate  Press  ' '  that  his  operations  have  been 
suspended.  He  made  a  passionate  appeal 
for  mercy  when  charged  at  the  Clerkenwell 
Sessions,  and  pleaded  to  be  dealt  with 
under  the  First  Offenders'  Act.  When 
Parkinson  was  brought  up  for  sentence  on 
Wednesday  last  (says  The  Daily  Mail) 
Mr.  McCall,  K.C.,  went  into  the  witness 
box  to  support  a  plea  for  clemency. 

At  the  last  Sessions  Parkinson  pleaded 
that  he  had  found  it  difficult  to  get  work, 
and  what  he  had  done  had  been  done  to 
provide  the  bare  necessities  of  life  for  his 
wife  and  their  child.  "  I  have  already 
suffered,"  he  urged,  "  the  terrible  pain  of 
mental  torture  and  punishment.  I  be- 
seech you  to  give  me  a  chance  of  social 

Mr.  McCall  said  that  he  had  known 
Parkinson  for  fifteen  or  sixteen  years,  and 
had  had  the  highest  opinion  of  his  integrity 
and  honesty.  He  would  try  to  hud  him 

Mr.  Wallace,  K.C.,  the  Chairman, 
begged  Parkinson  to  make  the  best  use 
of  a  fresh  opportimity  he  would  have  by 
being  bound  over  under  the  Probation 
Act.  One  of  the  conditions  would  be 
that  he  was  not  to  enter  a  public-house 
for  six  months. 

R.  E.  King  &  Co. 

Richard  Edward  King  (of  84A,  Staple- 
ton  Road,  Tooting,  and  4,  Eagle  Street, 
Holborn),  appeared  under  remand  at 
Bow  Street  on  Tuesday,  January  5th,  and 
was  further  remanded  till  next  Tuesday, 
January  12th. 

Mr.  A.  W.  Holt,  of  S,  Vincent  Road, 
Croydon,  was  called  and  gave  evidence 
that  he  supplied  a  set  of  the  'Encyclo- 
paedia Britannica  to  King  on  November 
1 6th,  1908,  for  which  King  agreed  to  pay 
£15.  Mr.  H.  J.  Rimmell,  Bookseller,  of 
53,  Shaftesbury  Avenue,  was  called  and 
said  that  he  purchased  the  books  and  case 
on  November  26th,  1908,  from  the 
prisoner  under  the  name  of  M.  Lewis. 
84A,  Stapleton  Road,  Tooting.  Mr.  Holt 
received  no  payment. 

Mr.  Allison,  of  Bridgwater,  who  sup- 
plied a  set  of  Dickens'  works  to  King  in 
December,  1907,  had  never  received  any 
payment.  Mr.  Fairburn,  Chemist.  North- 
allerton, sent  on  .September  2nd.  1908, 
a  set  of  the  Encyclopaedia  Britannica,  for 
which  King  agreed  to  pay  £16.  He 
subsequently  took  out  a  summons  in  the 
County  Court,  but  could  get  no  satis- 

Mr.  Crompton.  of  Eastbourne,  was 
called  and  gave  evidence  that  he  supplied 
King  on  October  26th.  1908,  with  a  set  of 
The  International  Library,  for  which  he 
agreed  to  pay  £3.  Mr.  Crompton  identi- 
fied his  set  of  books  as  being  those  sold 
to  Messrs.  Neville  &  George,  of  South 
Kensington,  by  the  prisoner  under  the 
name  of  M.  Lewis,  for  £1  10s. 

Mr.  Batten,  of  Portsmouth,  was  called 
and  said  that  he  supplied  a  set  of  Dickens' 
works  on  October  16th  last,  which  he  at 
first  agreed  to  sell  to  King  for  £1  15s., 
but  finding  that  he  could  not  get  payment, 
subsequently  agreed  to  take  £1  2s.  Mr. 
J.  Westell,  of  106,  Charing  Cross  Road, 
stated  that  he  purchased  the  set  of 
Dickens  on  October  22nd  for  17s.  6d. 
from  the  prisoner  under  the  name  of 
M.  Lewis,  84A,  Stapleton  Road,  Tooting, 
London,  S.W. 

Mr.  Appleton,  of  Colchester,  gave 
evidence  that  he  supplied  King  with 
8  vols,  of  Harmsworth's  Educator  on 
November  5th.  for  which  he  had  received 
no  payment. 

Mr.  Rimmell  and  Mr.  Westell  stated 
that  the  Encyclopatlia  Britannica  at  the 
present  time  was  not  worth  more  than 
£7  or  £9  to  the  trade  for  subsequent 
disposal ;  and  that  the  Dickens  was  not 
worth  more  than  about  17s.  6d..  and  the 
International  Library,  £1  10s.  If  higher 
prices  than  these  were  given  it  would  be 
almost  impossible  to  dispose  of  them  at  a 
profit.  Neither  of  these  gentlemen  knew 
of  Messrs.  R.  E.  King  &  Co..  as  W  holesale 
Booksellers  at  4.  Eagle  Street.  Holborn.

The  late  Mrs.  Cashel  Hoey 

All  who  knew  that  charming  lady,  the 
late  Mrs.  Cashel  Hoey  (who  was  well 
known  to  many  publishers  and  editors), 
should  see  a  very  kindly  note  in  Truth 
of  December  30th,  1908,  about  that 
accomplished  lady.  Here  is  an  extract 
from  it  : — 

"  Her  culture  was  wide.  She  had 
studied,  read,  thought  much,  mixed  with 
first-rate  people,  seen  and  felt  vividly  the 
ups  and  downs  of  life,  and  came  through 
the  latter  the  stronger  in  heart  and  mind 
and  the  keener  in  her  peculiar  wit  for  the 
experience.  Always  unaffected  and  prac- 
tical, I  think  she  would  with  pleasure 
have  darned  stockings  for  the  universe. 
There  could  be  no  more  cheerful  worker 
with  her  pen,  or  with  her  needle."

A  New  25=Guinea  Work 

on  Dutch  Art 

Messrs.  Scheltema  &  Holkema,  the 
well-known  publishers  and  booksellers 
of  Amsterdam,  are  publishing  a  fine 
work  with  photogravure  reproductions 
of  all  the  known  paintings  of 

"  Jan  Vermeer  of  Delft 


with  biographical  and  descriptive  text, 
by  Dr.  C.  Hofstede  de  Groot.  The 
,  forty-two  photogravures  are  very  fine, 
and  range  in  size  from  50  by  40  centi- 
metres down.  The  page  of  text  is 
exceedingly  handsome,  but  the  size  is 
enormous,  26  by  20  niches.  With 
reference  to  the  work  the  publishers 
say  : — 

The  Editor  of  Publishers'  Circular. 
Dear  Sir, — By  the  same  mail  we  have 
forwarded  to  your  address  the  pros- 
pectus of  our  publication,  entitled 
"  Jan  Vermeer  of  Delft  and  Carel 

We  commend  this  prospectus  and 
the  accompanying  photogravure  to 
your  kind  attention  and  consideration. 

You  will  observe  that  this  work  is 
indispensable    for    art    critics,  con- 

1  noisseurs,  painters,  amateurs,  and 
collectors  of  old  Dutch  art.  It  con- 
tains the  reproductions  of  all  the  known 
works  of  these  masters,  whose  art  calls 
forth  constantly  increasing  interest, 
and  the  reproductions  are  so  excellently 
executed  that  their  works  can  be 
studied  without  seeing  the  originals. 
The  methods  of  painting,  the  entire 
treatment  of  subjects,  how  the  models 
posed  for  the  portraits,  &c,  all  this 
can  be  learnt  from  these  photogravures. 
Tliis  is  of  the  greatest  importance  for 
people  who  study  the  works  of  old 
Dutch  painters,  as  there  is  not  the 
slightest  doubt  that  there  are  more 

I  paintings  by  these  masters  still  extant. 
We  hope  you  may  find  this  of  so 
much  importance  for  your  readers 
that  you  will  notice  the  work.  The 
portfolio  contains  till  yet  only  a  text 
in  Dutch  or  German  language,  but  we 
shall  at  once  print  an  English  text  as 
soon  as  we  meet  with  some  interest  on 
the  side  of  the  English  people.    It  is 

1      our  intention  to  continue  to  complete 

this  work.  As  soon  as  a  picture  of 
these  masters  is  discovered,  we  do  our 
utmost  to  have  it  reproduced  and 
publish  it  hi  photogravure.  Recently 
Dr.  Hofstede  de  Groot,  who  is  now  in 
America,  wrote  us  that  he  had  dis- 
covered another  unknown  picture  of 
Vermeer.  We  are  going  to  have  it 
reproduced,  and  will  publish  it  as  a 
continuation  on  the  work.  Never 
of  any  painter  has  been  published  such 
a  complete  work  containing  reproduc- 
tions of  all  his  work,  and  in  this  size 
and  quality. — Yours  faithfully. 

SCHELTEMA  &  Holkema, 


Suffolk  Bookseller's  Strange 

Harry  Edward  Harmer,  55,  respectably 
dressed,  described  as  a  bookseller  and 
stationer,  of  New  Market  Place,  Beccles, 
Suffolk,  was  charged  with  begging  in 
High  Holborn  on  Wednesday  evening, 
December  30th. 

After  Police- Constable  574  E  had 
described  how  he  saw  the  defendant 
accosting  two  gentlemen,  and  then  enter- 
ing a  shop  and  asking  for  twopence 
towards  the  cost  of  a  night's  lodging,  the 
defendant  essayed  to  make  a  statement 
but  broke  down  and  sobbed  bitterly. 

Mr.  Arthur  Martin,  the  mendicity 
officer,  said  the  prisoner  told  him  he  left 
Beccles  on  business  on  December  7th, 
having  arranged  that  his  wife  should  join 
him  in  London  two  days  later.  He  did 
not  meet  her — he  could  not  explain  the 
reason — and  since  then  he  had  been 
wandering  aimlessly  about  the  country, 
one  day  -finding  himself  at  Reading. 
During  the  last  few  nights  he  slept  on  the 
Embankment.  He  had  two  shops  at 

Inspector  Caire  added  that  when  the 
prisoner  was  brought  to  the  station  he 
appeared  to  have  lost  his  memory.  Next 
morning  he  told  a  story  similar  to  that 
related  by  the  mendicity  officer.  He 
added  that  he  forgot  all  about  the  busi- 
ness which  brought  him  to  London,  and 
also  the  appointment  with  his  wife. 

By  the  magistrate's  direction  the 
police  telephoned  to  Beccles  and  ascer- 
tained that  the  prisoner's  wife  was,  in 
consequence  of  the  message,  on  her  way 
to  London. 

Subsequently  a  friend  of  the  de- 
fendant's, an  accountant,  practising  at 
Co  vent  Garden,  saw  the  magistrate  hi  his 
private  room,  and  undertook  to  accom- 
pany the  defendant  back  to  his  home. 

On  this  understanding  Mr.  Harmer 
was  discharged. — Daily  Mail,  January  1st.

Letters  to  the  Editor 

[We  do  not  hold  ourselves  responsible  for  the 
opinions  expressed  by  our  Correspondents.'] 


Dear  vSir, — We  have  noticed  that  for 
some  time  past  the  question  has  been 
raised  in  The  Publishers'  Circular  as 
to  the  supply  of  net  books  post  free. 
We  sincerely  hope  that  the  result  of  this 
agitation  will  be  the  means  of  stopping 
net  books  being  supplied  post  free.  We 
should  like  to  bring  to  your  notice  how 
this  question  affects  booksellers  in  the 
Colonies,  by  mentioning  to  you  a  case  in 
point  which  came  before  us  recently.  A 
customer  of  ours  objects  to  our  enhancing 
the  net  published  price  of  books.  You 
probably  know  that  it  is  the  rule  through- 
out almost  all  British  Colonies  to  advance 
the  price  by  about  20  per  cent.,  and 
this  is  not  at  all  excessive  when  the 
heavy  cost  of  freight  and  shipping 
charges  is  taken  into  consideration.  Our 
customer,  who,  by  the  way,  is  a  medical 
man,  told  us  that  there  is  a  certain  firm 
in  Edinburgh,  whose  name  we  shall 
not  mention,  who  has  been  for  some  time 
supplying  him  with  medical  books  at  the 
net  published  price,  post  free.  This  in 
our  opinion  is  a  direct  contravention  to 
the  Net  Book  Agreement,  so  that  the 
question  not  only  affects  booksellers  in 
England ,  but  hi  the  Colonies  as  well.  We 
sincerely  hope  that  this  matter  will  be 
seriously  taken  up  by  the  Publishers' 
Association,  and  that  an  agreement  will 
soon  be  arrived  at  which  will  prevent  this 
sort  of  thing  continuing  any  longer. 

We  remain,  Yours  faithfully, 

J.  C.  Juta  &  Co. 

Cape  Town. 

December  16th,  1908. 

[It  is  an  unfortunate  fact  that  both 
booksellers  and  publishers  are  divided 
on  this  question.  Our  view,  as  we  have 
said  from  the  very  first,  is  that  if  this 
sending  of  net  books  post  free  becomes 
general,  it  will  destroy  the  net  book 
system.  To  give  a  customer  4d.  hi 
postage  is  worse  than  givmg  him  3d. 
discount.  Unfortunately,  again,  there 
are  booksellers  and  publishers  who  do 
not  believe  in  the  net  book  system,  and 
would  rejoice  to  see  the  wretched  discount 
system  agahi  predominant,  fortunately 
they  are  not  at  present  more  than  a 
small  minority,  but  unless  the  spirit,  as 
well  as  the  letter  of  the  Net  Book  Agree- 
ment is  adhered  to  firmly  and  loyally, 
their  ranks  will  soon  grow. — Ed.  P.C.] 


Dear  Sir, — As  one  of  the  earliest  and 
staunchest  supporters  of  the  net  system, 
I  wish  to  draw  your  attention  to  a 
practice  of  some  retailers  which  tends  to 
bring  it  into  discredit  with  the  public, 
and  thereby  to  seriously  jeopardise  it. 
I  refer  to  the  practice  of  making  a  sup- 
plementary charge  "  for  collection." 

Being  retailer  as  well  as  publisher, 
I  quite  appreciate  the  fact  that  the 
margin  of  profit  on  a  net  book — especially 
a  low  priced  one — is  very  small,  but  still 
I  would  urge  that  in  the  interests  of  the 
system  it  is  imperative  to  do  nothing  to 
increase  the  antagonism  felt  by  a  not 
inconsiderable  portion  of  the  book-buying 
world  towards  it.  As  is  well  known, 
many  buyers  feel  a  permanent  resentment 
at  having  to  pay  a  "  marked  "  price  ;  it 
seems  to  them  they  are  actually  de- 
frauded if  they  do  not  get  some  reduction. 
This  is  a  standing  trait  of  the  buyer's 
psychology  ;  it  has  got  to  be  put  up 
with,  but  there  is  no  sense  in  borrowing 
trouble  by  clapping  on  supplementary 
charges. — Faithfully  yours, 

David  Nutt. 

57-59,  Long  Acre,  W.C. 

[It  was  a  little  remarkable  that  the  next 
letter  in  our  mail  after  Messrs.  Juta's, 
complaining  of  postage  being  allowed  to 
private  customers  on  net  books,  was  this 
one  from  Mr.  David  Nutt  complaining  of 
booksellers  making  an  extra  charge  for 
supplying  net  books  because  the  trade 
allowance  is  so  small ;  and  yet  other 
booksellers  can  collect  and  pay  postage  ! 
—Ed.  P.C.] 


Dear  Sir, — It  is  believed  that  library 
practice  is  now  sufficiently  developed  to 
warrant  the  issue  of  a  comprehensive 
work  of  reference  on  the  subject.  As 
publishers  have  refused  to  accept  the 
risk  of  so  large  a  nature  hi  such  a  limited 
field,  it  is  necessary  to  issue  the  work  by 
subscription.  The  volume  will  be  demy 
8vo.,  containing  approximately  700  pages, 
and  will  be  illustrated  wherever  it  is  con- 
sidered necessary.  Only  the  foremost 
authorities  will  be  engaged  to  write  on 
their  various  subjects,  so  that  the  book 
will  be  undoubtedly  the  most  authorita- 
tive and  up-to-date.  Obviously  the 
expenses  in  connection  with  a  work  of 
this  size,  and  of  so  comprehensive  a 
nature,  will  be  very  heavy,  and  it  has 
been  necessary  to  fix  the  price  at  30s. 
This  price  will  be  increased  should  the 
volume  be  offered  for  sale  after  publica- 
tion, to  non-subscribers,  to  40s.  If  the 
number  of  subscribers  is  not  large  enough 
to  warrant  the  publication,  the  work  will 
not  be  proceeded  with. — Yours  faithfully.

WE  regret  to  announce  the  death  of  Miss 
Charlotte  Low.  which  took  place  at  her 
residence  in  Queen's  Road.  Tun  bridge 
Wells,  on  December  31st.  The  deceased 
lady  was  the  last  Surviving  cliild  of  the 
late  Mr.  Sampson  Low.  Sen.,  and  though 
more  or  less  an  invalid  for  many  years, 
she  nearly  attained  the  age  of  78  years. 
The  deceased  took  a  great  interest  in  all 
charitable  objects  and  devoted  her  time 
and  energies  so  far  as  possible  for  the 
benefit  of  others,  and  was  much  loved  and 
esteemed  by  all  who  knew  her.

Trade  Notes 

Following  the  announcement  a  few 
months  ago,  that  the  old-established 
bookbinding  business  of  Messrs.  Smith 
Brothers,  of  1-9,  Ivy  Lane,  B.C.,  had  been 
acquired  by  Messrs.  A.  Straker  &  Son, 
they  now  inform  us  that  it  has  been 
decided  to  incorporate  the  two  names 
and  the  style  of  the  firm  will  in  future 

A.  Straker  &  Son,  Smith  Bros.,  Ltd. 
To  prevent  confusion  with  firms  of 
similar  name  they  state  that  they  are 
wholesale  bookbinders  only,  and  in  no 
way  connected  with  the  printing  and 
stationery  trade. 

Mr.  A.  H.  Stockwell  of  6  and  7,  Creed 
Lane,  E.C.,  has  moved  to  new  premises 
at  29,  Ludgate  Hill,  E.C. 

Messrs.  Duckworth  &  Co.  have 
arranged  for  Mr.  W.  B.  Akerman  to 
represent  them  in  the  country  in  con- 
junction with  Messrs.  Chapman  &  Hall 

Notices  of  Books 

From  Messrs.  George  Allen  &  Sons. — "  The 

Love  Family,"  by  Mrs.  Spielmann,  with 
fifty  drawings  (twelve  in  colour)  by  Carton 
Moore-Park.  The  story  of  the  doings  of 
Mr.  and  Mrs.  Love  and  their  young  folk, 
wherein  we  view  Cupid's  machinations  at 
close  quarters  and  his  effect  upon  the 
future  of  Angela  and  Sir  Valentine.  The 
drawings  are  of  unequal  merit  ;  how 
delightful,  for  instance,  the  one  showing 
Cupid  engaged  in  drying  himself  after  his 
rose-water  tub,  and  how  unsatisfactory 
the  figure  of  Sir  Valentine  as  he  lies  listen- 
in.;  to  Angela  playing  upon  the  harp  ! 
The  letterpress  forms  a  pleasant  kind  of 
running  commentary  to  the  fifty  drawings, 
and  the  get-up  of  the  little  book  is  of 
suitable  daintiness. 
From  the  Same. — "  Cannes  and  Its  Sur- 
roundings," illustrated  and  described  by 
Amy  M.  Beuecke.  It  is  not  often  that  the 
practical  and  the  picturesque  are  so  success- 
fully combined  as  in  this  volume.  The 
illustrations  are  things  of  real  beauty,  the 
coloured  plates  showing  up  delightfully 
against  their  background  of  coarse  dark 
paper,  and  yet  the  book  is  a  mine  of 
useful  information  made  easy  of  access 
by  a  good  index  and  marginal  headings. 
Visitors  to  Cannes  will  find  it  a  vade 
mecum,  and  motorists  may  find  hints 
about  roads  and  distances,  &c. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Varying  Year,"  by 
the  Right  Hon.  George  W.  E.  Russell. 
This  garrulous  and  scrappy  book  is  certainly 
not  what  we  expected  from  Mr.  George 
Russell.  It  seems  a  curiously  purposeless 
string  of  small  talk  ranging  over  a  wide 
field  (Oxford  life,  the  London  Season, 
Motoring,  Schoolboys,  Bishop  Wilberforce,

Franco-British  Exhibition,  &c),  and 
divided  under  the  headings  of  the  months 
of  the  year.  Remarks  upon  the  weather 
are  a  leading  feature.  For  instance,  we 
are  told  that  the  effect  of  March  is  that 
"  the  biliary  ducts  have  righted  themselves 
and  the  air,  soft  as  butter,  soothes  our 
bronchial  tubes."  Mr.  Russell  proclaims 
himself  a  Londoner  of  Londoners,  and 
whilst  admitting  that  town  dwellers  eat 
too  much  and  take  too  little  exercise,  he 
believes  that  Dulness  is  the  avenging 
angel  of  Rural  life.    Well  ! 

From  Messrs.  George  Bell  &  Sons. — "  English 
Figure  Skating,"  by  E.  F.  Benson  ;  with 
illustrations.  "  There  are,  so  we  are  accus- 
tomed to  think,  but  two  edges  to  a  skate, 
and  since,  whether  proceeding  backwards 
or  forwards,  we  can  in  some  sort  of  fashion 
turn  from  any  one  edge  to  any  other, 
revolving  either  to  the  right  or  to  the 
left  (for  we  do  not  see  how  we  can  revolve 
in  any  third  way),  we  should  be  disposed 
to  say  that  the  possible  limit  of  turns  has 
been  reached.  The  design,  therefore,  of 
this  treatise  is  to  put  down  all  that  has 
been  ascertained  hitherto  about  the  possi- 
bilities attaching  to  the  skate  when  trodden 
on  and,  more  or  less,  controlled  by  a  sktaer 
who  performs  in  what  is  known  as  the 
English  style."  This  paragraph,  taken  from 
the  Introduction,  adequately  describes  this 
up-to-date  manual  on  ice  figure  skating, 
designed  for  the  beginner  and  also  to  help 
the  skater  even  when  he  is  well  on  the 
road  to  becoming  a  first-class  performer  by 
Mr.  E.  F.  Benson,  member  of  the  Skating 
Club  and  National  Skating  Association 
(First  Class),  and  illustrated  with  twenty 
prints  from  photographs  taken  by  Mrs. 
Aubrey  le  Blond.  We  cannot  help  think- 
ing that  many  who  have  become  enthu- 
siasts owing  to  the  booming  of  roller 
skating  and  the  great  number  of  rinks 
which  have  been  opened  during  the  last 
year  or  two  will  read  Mr.  Benson's  book 
with  interest  although  treating  of  a  some- 
what different  subject,  and  the  first  lengthy 
frost  will  find  them  eagerly  practising 
forward  and  back  edges  on  the  nearest 
stretch  of  ice.  An  index  would  be  a  very 
welcome  addition  to  this  capital  manual. 

From  Messrs.  Blackie  &  Son,  Ltd. — "  Sir 

Sleep-Awake  and  His  Brothers,"  by  Mr. 
G.  J.  Whitham.  This  is  an  adventure  tale 
of  the  time  of  the  Great  Crusade.  Sir 
Sleep-Awake  Dormer  and  his  brother, 
owners  of  great  estates  and  treasure 
quarrel  through  misunderstandings,  so  the 
one  departs  on  a  pilgrimage  to  the  Holy 
Land,  while  the  other  fights  the  Moors  in 
Spain.  The  story  of  how  they  are  sought 
for  through  all  sorts  of  dangers  and 
difficulties  till  they  finally  meet  and  are 
reconciled  is  told  with  a  briskness  and 
reality  which  will  delight  the  boyish 
reader.  There  are  a  few  good  illustrations 
by  N.  Tenison.  Such  books  are  a  useful 
handmaid  to  history. 

From  Messrs.  Chatto  &  Windus. — "  From 
Island  to  Empire,"  by  John  S.  C.  Bridge. 
With  Introduction  by  Admiral  Sir  Cyprian 
A.  G.  Bridge,  G.C.B.  A  short  history  of 
the  expansion  of  England  by  force  of  arms, 
beginning  with  the  Elizabethan  seamen 
and  the  struggle  with  Spain,  and  con- 
cluding with  an  account  of  the  Boer  War. 
The  style  is  admirable,  being  dignified, 
lucid  and  entertaining.  There  are  several 
maps  and  plans,  and  a  Table  of  tbe  British 
Empire  giving  the  names  of  all  English 
colonies  and  possessions  with  the  dates 
and  method  of  acquisition. 

From  the  Same. — "  Joyce  Pleasantry,"  by 
George  R.  Sims.  A  volume  of  short  stories 
dealing  with  the  life  of  the  middle  and 
lower  classes  in  the  direct  and  forcible  style 
with  which  the  name  of  Mr.  Sims  has  for 
so  long  been  associated.  The  author  has 
a  fecund  fancy,  and  his  method  is  vivid 
and  life-like.  His  work  has  introduced 
him  to  strange  scenes  and  stories,  and 
those  which  go  to  form  the  present  col- 
lection are  written  from  actual  intimacy 
with  the  phases  of  life  described. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Little  Flowers  of  St. 
Francis  of  Assisi."  Translated  from  the 
Italian  by  T.  W.  Arnold,  M.A.,  with  a  Note 
by  Dr.  Guido  Biagi.  Both  printer,  binder 
and  publisher  have  dealt  generously  with 
this  beautiful  edition  of  a  great  classic. 
The  type  is  particularly  choice,  the  mar- 

gins wide,  and  the  illustrations  well  chosen 
and  excellently  reproduced.  The  cover 
design  in  red  and  gold  is  a  replica  of  a 
binding  embodying  the  arms  of  St.  Francis, 
by  Aldus  Manutius  of  Venice,  date  circa 
1500.  Dr.  Biagi's  sympathetic  note  is  both 
interesting  and  scholarly.    ,     (.  t  1  •  |g2j 

From  Messrs.  J.  '.M.JDent.&^o.— "  A  Little 
Summer  at  Assisi,"  by'  Clemence  North. 
The  output  of  what  may  be  called  Fran 
ciscan  literature  shows  no  signs  of  diminish- 
ing. The  present  slim  little  volume  is 
unambitious  in  its  form  and  tells  of  the 
effect  upon  the  characters  of  three  English 
maidens  of  a  summer  spent  in  the  Umbrian 
town  of  Saint  Francis.  They  go  to  La 
Verna,  to  the  Carceri,  to  San  Damiano — 
who  that  has  trodden  the  Saint's  path  can 
ever  forget  it  ! — and  though  it  is  all  very 
slight  and  rather  dicousu  it  is  to  the  disciple 
so  understandable,  evoking  the  very 
emotions  which  he  has  himself  felt  in 
similar  places.  We  are  even  prepared  for 
the  "  Brother  Train  "  in  which  they  travel 

From  Messrs.  Duckworth  &  Co. — "  Some 
African  Highways,"  by  Caroline  Kirkland. 
With  Introduction  by  Lieut. -General 
Baden-Powell.  Miss  Kirkland  has  all 
the  intuition  and  vivacity  of  a  woman, 
combined  with  the  adventurous  spirit  and 
strength  of  purpose  of  a  man.  She  started 
from  Naples  en  route  for  Mombasa  three 
years  ago,  and  travelled  through  Uganda 
and  the  Transvaal  in  company  with  her 
mother  and  an  Italian  maid.  Miss 
Kirkland,  who  is  an  American  lady, 
contributed  an  account  of  her  adventures 
and  observations  to  the  Chicago  Tribune, 
and  these  are  embodied  in  the  present 
volume.  The  book  is  bright  and  attractive 
with  its  yellow  cover,  admirable  pictures, 
and  pleasant,  gossipy  style. 

From  the  Same. — "  God's  Message  through 
Modern  Doubt,"  by  theRev.  E.  Aldom 
French,  is  the  work  of  one  who  has 
evidently  felt  to  the  full  all  the 
modern  difficulties  in  the  way  of  orthodox 
Christian  belief,  and  yet  has  retailed  his 
faith.  He  has  passed  through  his  Slough 
of  Despond  and  surmounted  his  Hill  of 
Difficulty,  and  can  hold  out  a  hand  to 
guide  others  to  the  Land  of  Beulah. 
Though  apparently  originally  composed 
as  sermons,  the  wide  literary  knowledge 
and  cogent  argumentation  of  the  book 
make  it,  perhaps,  even  better  suited  for 
personal  enlightenment  and  private  medita- 
tion ;  and  it  may  well  prove  helpful  to  the 
Christian  to  hold  fast  to  his  belief  in  the 
Bible,  in  miracles,  and  hi  immortality  in 
spite  of  the  higher  criticism,  in  spite  even 
of  such  deeper  problems  as  the  waste 
and  suffering  of  life. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Second  Edition  of 
Edward  FitzGerald's  Rubaiyat  of  '  Omar 
Khayyam.'  "  Edited  by  Edward  Heron- 
Allen.  Mr.  Edward  Heron-Allen  has  for 
some  years  been  well  known  as  a  linguist 
of  considerable  attainments,  and  as  a  dis- 
tinguished student  of  Eastern  life  and 
literature.  Few  Englishmen  are  so  well 
fitted  as  he  to  undertake  the  task  of 
writing  lengthy  notes  on  FitzGerald's  won- 
derful translation  of  the  Persian  poet. 
Each  quatrain  is  printed  on  a  separate 
page,  and  is  succeeded  by  scholarly  notes 
revealing  vast  reading  and  much  cultured 
taste.  The  Introduction  embodies  a  par- 
ticularly interesting  letter  from  Professor 
Co  well. 

Messrs.  Gay  &  Hancock  have  issued  a  third 
edition  of  that  popular  book,  "  Pushing  to- 
the  Front,  or  Success  under  Difficulties," 
by  Orison  Swett  Marden.  Perhaps  no  book 
since  the  appearance  of  Smiles'  "  Self- 
Help  "  has  contained  more  wisdom  upon 
the  art  of  "  getting  on." 



Publishers'  Circular 

January  9,  1909 

Messrs.  Hodder  &  Stoughton  send  "  The 
Minister's  Diary  for  1900,"  a  handy 
pocket-book  for  the  nse  of  clergy  and 
ministers,  now  in  its  thirty-third  year  of 
publication,  containing  besides  a  diary 
pages  for  special  services,  visitations  and 
other  pastoral  engagements.  We  note  that 
while  the  Sunday  lessons  are  those  of  the 
Church  of  England,  the  list  of  religious 
societies  excludes  all  but  those  of  Noncon- 
formists. It  might  be  better  to  issue  the 
diary  in  two  forms — one  for  Church  clergy, 
the  other  for  Free  Church  ministers — and 
this  we  understand  Messrs.  Hodder  & 
Stoughton  intend  to  do  in  future  years. 

From  Messrs.  Jarrold  &  Sons. — "  The  Little 
Town  in  the  Valley,"  by  Constance 
Nevill.  A  pleasant  account,  illustrated 
from  photographs,  of  a  little  town  which 
we  confess  we  have  been  unable  to  identify. 
It  has  a  castle,  an  ancient  church,  an  old- 
world  street  of  stone-built  houses,  a  quiet 
river,  a  town  hall.  Soldiers  are  quartered 
near.  Perhaps  our  readers  will  be  cleverer 
than  we  are  and  discover  where  it  lies. 
Its  pages  breathe  a  simple  piety  which  is 
probably  the  frame  of  mind  generally 
induced  by  a  long  residence  in  just  such 
a  little  town. 

From  Mr.  John  Lane.—"  The  Well  of  Saint 
Clare,"  by  Anatole  France.  A  translation 
by  Alfred  Allinson.  Those  who  are  imable 
to  read  in  the  original  the  delightful  series 
of  stories  which  are  grouped  under  the 
name  of  the  Well  near  .Sienna,  where  the 
author  met  the  Reverend  Father  Doni, 
cannot  do  better  than  buy  this  excellent 
translation.  We  say  "  buy  "  advisedly,  for 
this  is  the  kind  of  book  one  returns  to 
again  and  again.  It  is  all  such  wonderfully 
good  reading  bearing  the  impress  of  the 
master  hand,  so  full  of  laughter  and  of 
tears,  of  pathos  and  of  deep  insight.  This 
series  of  translations  of  the  works  of 
Anatole  France,  which  is  being  issued  by 
Mr.  Lane,  is  marked  by  a  thoroughness  and 
finish  which  is  deserving  of  all  praise. 

From  Mr.  Eneas  Mackay  Stirling. — "  The 
Edinburgh  Periodical  Press,"  by  W.  J. 
Couper,  M.A.  Vol.  2.  Mr.  Couper's 
labour  of  love  is  now  completed  ;  his  two 
scholarly  volumes  stand  as  a  record  of  his 
patient  industry,  and  will  prove  service- 
able to  students  for  the  purposes  of  refer- 
ence. The  second  volume  consists  entirely 
of  a  bibliographical  account  of  the  news- 
papers, jotirnals  and  magazines  issued  in 
Edinburgh  from  171 1  to  1800.  The  work 
has  been  prepared  with  thoroughness,  and 
is,  we  believe,  quite  reliable. 

Messrs.  Macmillan  &  Co.  send  us  "  William 
Morris,"  by  Alfred  Noyes,  one  of  their 
"  English  Men  of  Letters  "  Series.  William 
Morris  was  a  many-sided  man  :  painter, 
printer,  manufacturer,  squire,  .Socialist,  but 
above  and  throughout  all,  a  poet.  It  is 
therefore  in  the  fitness  of  things  that  his 
life  should  be  written  by  Mr.  Noyes,  him- 
self a  poet  of  no  mean  powers  and  promise. 
This  eminently  readable  little  memoir  is  no 
mere  compendium  of  previous  records,  but 
a  first-hand  appreciation  of  one  artist  by 
another,  and  is  worthy  of  both. 

From  Messrs.  Marshall  Bros. — "  Glimpses  of 
Indian  Life,"  by  Miss  Henrietta  S.  Streat- 
ficld,  is  a  record  of  two  and  a  half  years' 
sojourn  among  the  Protestant  missions  of 
India.  Miss  Streatficld  modestly  disclaims 
any  literary  merit,  but  her  book  has  the 
interest  which  always  belongs  to  the 
faithful  and  simple  narrative  of  things 
actually  seen.  She  describes  with  pictures- 
queness  the  strange  life  and  scenery  of  the 
East,  and  her  enthusiastic  account  of  the 
great  evangelical  work  now  being  wrought 
among  the  women  of  India  cannot  hut 
help  to  awaken  among  her  readers  a  deeper 
interest  in  the  work  of  foreign  missions. 
There  are  some  excellent  illustrations  from 
photographs  taken  specially  for  the  book. 

From  the  Same. — "  Life  Radiant,"  by  Sophia 
M.  Nugent,  is  an  account  of  the  life  of  the 
Rev.  Francis  Paynter,  for  thirty-six  years 
Rector  of  Stoke,  near  Guildford.  Mr. 
Paynter  was  a  man  whose  whole  life  was, 
in  the  words  of  St.  Paul,  "  sanctified  and 
meet  for  the  Master's  use  and  prepared 
unto  every  good  work,"  and  Miss  Nugent's 
loving  and  faithful  record  of  it  may  well 
serve,  as  she  hopes,  to  inspire  the  reader 
to  follow  in  his  footsteps.  The  book  is 
handsomely  got  up  with  photographic 

From  Mr.  Elkin  Mathews. — "  Man  and 
Maid,"  by  Arthur  Gray.  It  would  be  easy 
to  laugh  at  this  strange  little  book,  with 
its  amazing  avalanche  of  capital  letters 
(Mr.  Gray  has  a  quite  unreasonable  belief 
in  their  impressiveness),  did  we  not  so 
heartily  agree  with  the  subject  matter — 
"  The  Cult  of  the  Child,"  so  our  author 
calls  it  ;  the  insistence  upon  the  sacred 
rights,  more  especially  of  the  unborn  child. 
So  much  study  is  devoted  to  the  favourable 
development  of  the  child  after  birth,  and  so 
little  to  the  equally  important  subject  of 
heredity  and  ante-natal  conditions.  Whilst 
designed  chiefly  for  men's  ears,  this  call 
for  serious  thought  upon  a  serious  subject 
should  appeal  equally  to  women.  When 
marriage  comes  to  be  based  upon  a  feeling 
of  the  deep  responsibility  of  parenthood, 
we  may  look  for  the  arrival  of  the  Super- 

From  the  Same. — "  Pan  Worship  and  Other 
Poems,"  by  Eleanor  Farjeon.  There  is  a 
good  deal  of  poetic  vagueness  about  Miss 
Farjeon's  work,  but  amid  more  ambitious, 
and  to  us  less  attractive,  pieces  we  light 
upon  such  a  gem  as  "  Dream  Ships,"  on 
page  37.  and  immediately  acknowledge 
that  here  is  the  true  note  of  poesy.  The 
book  is  worth  buying  for  this  alone,  but 
there  are  other  poems  of  a  like  grace  and 
beauty.  If  Miss  Farjeon  will  ruthlessly 
avoid  too  unstudied  a  form  of  utterance 
and  will  remember  that  what  comes 
easiest  to  her  pen  may  not  be  the  best  she 
can  give  us,  then  she  should  undoubtedly 
make  her  mark. 

From  Messrs.  A.  W.  Penrose  &  Co.,  Ltd. — 

"  Penrose's  Pictorial  Annual."  This  is 
Volume  XIV.,  1908-9,  of  "  The  Process 
Year  Book,"  edited  by  William  Gamble. 
This  work  will  be  found  very  useful  by  all 
who  are  interested  in  the  production  of 
illustration  by  any  of  the  many  mechanical 
processes.  There  are  over  fifty  contribu- 
tions, for  the  most  part  by  experts,  and 
more  than  three  hundred  and  fifty  speci- 
mens of  process  work  in  black  and  white, 
in  tint  and  in  colour.  Many  of  the  coloured 
illustrations  are  screamingly  vulgar  ;  for- 
tunately the  majority  are  at  least  in  good 
taste,  and  many  are  exquisite.  A  work 
like  this  has  to  be  representative  of  art 
as  it  finds  it.  The  cover  design  is  simply 

From  Sir  Isaac  Pitman  &  Sons,  Ltd. — "  The 

First  George  in  Hanover  and  England," 
by  Lewis  Melville.  2  vols.  It  is  with 
George  Lewis  the  man  rather  than  George 
I.  the  King  that  this  voluniiuous  and 
handsome  work  is  concerned,  and  a  great 
part  of  it  is  devoted  to  a  detailed  account 
of  those  fifty-four  years  of  his  life  that  were 
spent  at  Hanover — a  subject  not  before 
treated  at  length  by  any  English  writer. 
In  Mr.  Lewis  Melville's  opinion,  neither 
the  character  nor  the  conduct  of  George  I. 
have  received  justice  at  the  hands  of 
English  historians,  and  a  successful  attempt 
is  here  made  to  remove  the  several  mis- 
understandings generally  accepted  without 
question  in  this  country.  A  great  deal  of 
fresh  and  most  important  material  is  pre- 
sented to  the  English  reader  in  a  style  not 
only  readable  but  also  fascinating.  The 
1      character  of  the  King  is  analysed  with  no 

small  amount  of  psychological  insight  ; 
and  the  life  of  the  Court,  with  its  jealousies 
and  intrigues,  is  dealt  with  in  a  vivid  and 
life-like  manner.  Mr.  Melville  has,  indeed, 
written  a  work  of  much  more  than  passing 
interest,  for  the  volumes  will  take  a  per- 
manent place  in  the  history  of  Hanover 
and  England.  By  the  kindness  of  the 
Duke  of  Cumberland  and  Count  Alexander 
von  Kielmansegg  many  interesting  por- 
traits and  sketches  are  included. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Life  of  Sir  Isaac 
Pitman,  by  Alfred  Baker.  This  is  one  of 
the  most  interesting  biographies  that  has 
come  under  our  notice  for  some  time. 
It  is  the  first  authoritative  memoir  of  the 
inventor  of  phonography,  and  Mr.  Baker 
has  had  full  access  to  family  papers.  Sir 
Isaac's  name  is,  of  course,  famous  in 
connection  with  his  system  of  shorthand. 
Originally  thought  out  early  in  the 
thirties,  it  was  embodied  in  1837  in  a  small 
book,  entitled  "Stenographic  Sound-Hand," 
in  1842  the  first  number  of  The  Phono- 
graphic Journal  appeared,  and  by  degrees 
the  system  was  perfected,  the  improve- 
ments and  additions  lasting  over  a  long 
period  of  years.  It  is  impossible  to  say 
how  deep  an  influence  upon  national 
life  in  nearly  every  department  shorthand 
has  exercised.  But  quite  apart  from  this 
subject,  which  Sir  Isaac  made  peculiarly 
his  own,  the  record  of  his  strenuous  life 
which  covers  practically  the  whole  Vic- 
torian era  (1813-1897)  is  of  great  interest. 
He  was  a  many-sided  man,  a  man  of  deep 
religious  feeling,  and  endowed  with  many 
noble  qualities,  and  Mr.  Baker  has  made 
good  use  of  the  excellent  material  placed 
in  his  hands.

Ltd. — ''  Pictured  Puzzles  and  Word  Play, 
a  companion  for  the  Twentieth  Century 
Standard  Puzzle  Book,"  edited  by  A.  Cyril 
Pearson,  M.A.  This  book,  profusely  illus- 
trated, is  full  of  anagrams,  puzzles,  palin- 
dromes, charades,  riddles,  and  other 
ridiculous  odds  and  ends.  Here  is  a 
specimen  : — 

"  Why  is  every  angler  ipso  facto  an 
Ananias?"  The  Editor  says,  "Al- 
though no  such  method  was  asked  for 
or  expected,  we  find  that  the  very 
letters  of  the  question  can  be  recast  into 
a  most  apposite  reply  !  Our  answer  by 
anagram  runs  thus  : — 

"  A  liar,  he  spins  gay  fancies  to  a 
woven  yarn." 

And  the  Editor  adds  "  Question  and 
Answer  are  spelt  with  the  same  letters." 

"  Why  is  every  anagram  maker  ipso 
facto  an  Ass  ?  " 

Although  no  such  method  was 
asked  for  or  expected,  we  find  that  the 
very  letters  of  the  question  can  be 
recast  into  a  most  apposite  reply  !  Our 
answer  proved  by  anagram  runs  thus  : — 

"  An  anagram  maker  ipso  facto 
wastes  own  time  with  others  " 
And  the  Editor  adds  "  Question  and 
Answer  are  spelt  with  the  same  letters." 
Mr.  Cyril  Pearson,  M.A.  must  not  be 
offended — unfortunately,  both  anagtams 
cut  both  ways  ! 

From  the  Same. — "  Voices  of  Nature," 
compiled  by  Mr.  E.  A.  Baker,  is  a  charming 
and  pocketable  anthology  of  prose  and 
verse  selections  in  praise  of  the  simple  life. 
It  invites  the  reader  to  "  come  and  make 
his  calm  retreat  among  green  leaves  and 
blossoms  sweet."  The  selections  range 
over  English  (and  American)  literature 
from  Wordsworth  to  the  present  day  ; 
they  are  chosen  to  represent  every  phase 
of  Nature,  and  to  suit  every  mood  of  the 
Nature-lover  :  it  is  a  book  to  make  a 
friend  of.

name  and  number  of  days,  followed  by  a 
couplet  from  Tusser's  "  Five  Hundred 
Pointes  of  Good  Husbandrie  "  (1599)  ;  on 
the  second  is  a  woodcut  faced  by  a  black 
letter  copy  of  a  rhyme  and  prose  passage 
comparing  each  month  with  the  twelve 
ages  of  man  (in  periods  of  six  years  each)  : 
these  are  translations  from  the  French 
original.  Breton's  "  Fantasticks  "  (1626) 
provides  the  letterpress  of  the  last  four 
pages.  The  peculiar  treasure  of  the  book 
lies  in  the  unique  series  of  woodcuts 
representing  man's  occupation  throughout 
the  year  and  giving  a  vivid  picture  of 
country  fife  in  the  Middle  Ages.  We  recom- 
mend collectors  to  secure  a  copy  of  this 
book,  to  which  Mr.  Diplock  contributes  an 
interesting  introduction,  for  we  believe  it 
will  rise  in  price  as  copies  get  scarcer. 

From  Messrs.  Sisley's. — "  Vincenzo  Bellini," 
by  William  A.  C.  Lloyd.  It  seems  strange 
that  in  these  days  of  Wagner  and  Brahms 
a  panegyric  upon  Bellini  should  be  pub- 

;  lished.  Mr.  Lloyd's  memoir  is  spoilt  by 
exaggeration  and  want  of  judgment.  Who, 

3  for  instance,  will  agree  that  "  it  would  be 
difficult  to  say  that  he  (Bellini)  does  not 
rank  with  the  greatest  names  in  the  art  of 
all  ages  and  all  countries  on  account  of 
two  of  his  works  ?  "  The  book  contains  a 
full  account  of  Bellini's  life  and  a  detailed 
analysis  of  his  works  ;  in  all  this  Mr.  Lloyd 
is  interesting  enough,  but  the  conclusions 
which  he  arrives  at  do  not  appear  to  us  to 
be  sound. 

From  Messrs.  Smith,  Elder  &  Co.— "Selected 
Speeches,"  by  Sir  Edward  Clarke,  K.C. 
Sir  Edward  Clarke  confesses  in  his  preface 
that  the  object  of  this  book's  publication 
is  that  he  may  be  remembered  by  a 
portrait  rather  than  by  an  epitaph.  This 
book  is  his  portrait.  He  has  put  all  of 
himself  into  these  speeches,  so  lucid,  so 
informed  by  high  ideals,  so  felicitous  in 
phrase.  There  are  thirty-two  speeches  in 
all  on  subjects  as  widely  different  as  the 
Liquor  Traffic  and  Parliamentary  Privi- 
lege. The  four  forensic  speeches  included 
are  of  special  interest. 

From  Mr.  Arthur  H.  Stockwell. — "  When 
Women  Reign,"  by  Mr.  Jesse  Wilson. 
Weary  of  pohtical  strife  and  national 
corruption,  Mr.  James  Cliffe  puts  himself 
"  into  a  long  comatose,"  and  wakes  in 
1930  to  find  a  changed  England.  Women 
have  won  the  franchise  and  are  using 
their  power  remorselessly.  How  the 
Women's  Parliament  becomes  more  and 
more  tyrannical,  how  the  men  revolt,  and 
how  after  their  brief  reign  women  return 
with  joy  to  their  natural  sphere,  may  be 
read  in  Mr.  Wilson's  brisk  and  amusing 

Mr.  Fisher  Unwin  has  issued  a  third  impres- 
sion of  Mr.  Whitechurch's  novel,  "  The 
Canon  in  Residence,"  which  first  appeared 
in  1904.  This  is  sufficient  evidence  that  the 
book  contains  something  more  than  the 
usual  run  of  novels. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Baronet's  Wife," 
by  Florence  Warden.  We  have  every 
confidence  in  recommending  this  capital 
novel  to  all  who  like  an  exciting  account  of 
the  gradual  detection  of  mysterious 
crimes — a  healthy,  amusing,  well-written 

From  Messrs.  Rowland  Ward,  Ltd. — "The 
Game  Animals  of  Africa,"  by  R.  Lydekker. 
In  no  region  of  the  world  have  greater 
advances  been  made  of  late  years  in  our 
knowledge  of  big  game  animals  than  is  the 
case  with  those  of  Africa.  In  consequence 
of  this  rapid  advance,  even  naturalists 
find  it  difficult  to  keep  themselves  abreast 
of  the  present  state  of  knowledge  ;  while 
in  the  case  of  sportsmen  this  is  an  absolute 
impossibility.  Mr.  R.  Lydekker  has  there- 
fore written  and  Mr.  Rowland  Ward  has 
published,  this  volume  in  which  will  be 
found  descriptions  of  all  the  species  and 
races  of  African  game  quadrupeds  at 
present  recognised  by  zoologists.  The 
author  has  largely  availed  himself  of  first- 
hand descriptions  by  African  sportsmen, 
so  that  in  the  matter  of  habits,  &c,  the 
book  is  thoroughly  trustworthy.  The 
work  is  lavishly  illustrated,  and  while  it 
will  appeal  largely  to  the  scientific 
naturalist  it  will  be  quite  indispensable  to 
the  African  big  game  sportsman  ;  and, 
as  it  is  issued  in  small  crown  4to.  form, 
it  will  not  be  too  bulky  to  be  carried  on 
the  march. 

From  the  Same. — "  With  Rifle  in  Five 
Continents,"  by  Paul  Niedieck  ;  translated 
from  the  German  by  H.  B.  Stanwell, 
with  32  full-page  illustrations  from  photo- 
graphs and  174  illustrations  in  the  text. 
This  is  a  work  which  will  interest  all  lovers 
of  sport,  and  especially  those  who  love 
true  tales  of  adventure  in  the  great  wild 
hunting  grounds  of  the  world.  The 
author  says  :  "It  has  been  remarked  to 
me  by  one  who  ought  to  know  that  '  if 
you  describe  hunting  experiences  in  foreign 
countries,  and  want  to  be  believed,  you 
must  lie.'  I  have,  however,  refrained  ; 
and  have  related  only  facts."  We  think 
that  any  sportsman  reading  Mr.  Niedieck' s 
book  will  agree  with  us  that  it  bears  the 
stamp  of  truth  in  its  modest  record  of 
sport  among  the  most  dangerous  land 
animals  of  the  world.  The  author  is  a 
born  hunter — keen,  cool,  confident  and 
successful.    The  illustrations  are  excellent. 

From    Messrs.    Williams    &    Norgate. — 

"  The  Incarnate  Purpose,"  by  G.  H. 
Percival,  is  a  series  of  thoughtful  and 
carefully  reasoned  sermons  on  the 
Spiritual  Unity  of  Life.  Accepting  ex  animo 
the  modern  evolutionary  view  of  human 
existence,  the  writer  seeks  to  justify  on  a 
rational  basis  such  fundamental  tenets  of 
religion  as  the  Immortality  of  the  Soul, 
the  value  of  Prayer,  the  reality  of  Free  Will, 
and  the  spiritual  efficacy  of  Pain.  His 
book  should  be  read  by  all  those  thoughtful 
men  who  feel  the  need  of  reconciling  the 
incontrovertible  facts  of  science  with  the 
deeper  instincts  of  the  heart. 

From  the  Same. — "  The  Fthics  of  the 
Christian  Life,"  by  Dr.  Theodor  von 
Haering,  Professor  of  Dogmatics  and 
Fthics  in  Tubingen  University  ;  trans- 
lated by  the  Rev.  J.  S.  Hill,  B.D.  This 
is  Volume  25  of  Messrs.  Williams  &  Nor- 
gate's  valuable  "  Theological  Translations 
Library,"  through  which  Sabatin's  "  Reli- 
gions of  Authority,"  Pfleiderer's  "  Primitive 
Christianity,"  Harnack's  "  History  of  Dog- 
ma," and  many  other  important  theological 
works  have  been  introduced  to  the  English 
public.  Professor  Haering's  book  is  well 
worthy  of  a  place  in  this  distinguished 
company.  As  a  member  of  the  Evange- 
lical Church  of  Germany  he  writes  from 
a  strictly  Protestant  point  of  view  and 
with  the  needs  of  his  own  denomination 
before  him.  Nevertheless,  his  book  is  of 
wide  general  value  from  its  breadth  of 
outlook,  its  careful  analysis  of  the  funda- 
mental principles  of  ethics  and  the  sincere 
yet  reverent  spirit  with  which  it  seeks  to 
interpret  the  Christian  Gospel  in  the 
language  of  the  age.  i

The    Publishers'  Circular 

January  9,  1909 



Keep  in  Touch  with  the  Trade 

By  Advertising  in  "The  Publishers'  Circular" 

"The  Publishers*  Circular"  is  read  by  booKsellers,  librarians,  and 
all  connected  with  boohs  and  literature  at  home  and  abroad.  It  possesses 
certain  features  which  make  it  indispensable,  and  there  is  hardly  a 
bookseller  in  the  country  who  does  not  read  and  study  every  number. 

The  up=to=date  Trade  information ;  the  List  of  Books  Wanted  :  and 
the  detailed  particulars  of  New  Publications  are  some  of  the  weekly 
features  which  ensure  its  being  bought  and  read  by  booksellers, 
librarians,  and  large  bookbuyers  generally. 

"  The  Publishers'  Circular "  is  therefore  an  excellent  medium  for 
Publishers'  Announcements.  An  advertisement  in  its  pages  is  the  most 
effective  and  economical  means  of  reaching  the  men  whose  business 
it  is  to  buy  books,  and  who  respond  to  book  advertising  more  than 
any  other  class. 

Booksellers  having  rare  or  second=hand  books  for  disposal  should 
try  the  effect  of  an  advertisement  in  "The  Publishers'  Circular."  We 
are  every  day  receiving  fresh  testimony  as  to  the  efficacy  of  our 
advertising  columns  in  this  respect.

SATURDAY,  JANUARY  16,  1909. 







In  The  Lamb  Shakespeare  for  Young  People,  based  on  Mary  and  Charles  Lamb's  Tales  from  Shakespeare,  an  attempt  is  made  to  insert  skilfully 
within  the  setting  of  prose  those  scenes  and  passages  from  the  Play  with  which  the  young-  reader  should  quite  early  become  acquainted.  To  carry

Note  what  H.M.I,  says  :  — "  The  value  to  teachers  of  such  a  complete  Manual  as  the  Six  Parts  make  will  be  very  great.  There  is  a 
clear,  definite,  graded  course  —  each  point  in  it  being  a  point  arising  naturally  and  definitely  out  of  what  has  preceded  it,  and  all  the  exercises 
suggested  being  on  what  children  like,  common,  homely,  'friendly  '  objects,  both  natural  and  artificial.  It  will  make  the  teacher's  task  of 
getting  the  children  to  see  at  once  the  points  which  they  must  seize  upon  when  drawing  an  object,  an  easy  one,  and  it  will  place  the  teacher 
himself  on  right  lines  of  thought  as  regards  Object  Drawing.  "

beg  to  announce  that  they  have  in 
preparation  a  series  of  Physical  Wall- 
Maps  in  Contour.  These  maps  have 
been  prepared  on  entirely  new  and 
ingenious  lines,  and  the  publishers  feel 
certain  that  this  method  of  presenting 
the  physical  features  of  a  country  will 
certainly  supersede  any  system  hitherto 
devised.  The  first  map  of  the  series, 
viz.,  South  America,  will  be  ready  early 
in  February,  and  the  publishers  will  be 
glad  to  answer  any  queries  in  regard 
to  them.

Modern  Aids  for  Teaching  Geography 



Now  Ready:  Europe,  Asia,  Africa,  North 
America,  South  America.    In  Preparation : 
Australia  and  British  Isles. 

MESSRS.  G.  W.  BACON  &  CO.,  Ltd.,  are  now  issuing  a  New  Series 
of  their  well-known  Excelsior  Wall  Slaps.     The  New  Series  is 
coloured  Orographically  instead  of  Politically.    The  Heights  of 
Land  are  shown  by  different  shades  of  Green  and  Brown,  and  the  Depths 
of  Water  by  varying  shades  of  Blue.    The  same  Bold  Outlines  and 
Lettering  as  in  the  original  series  are  retained  throughout. 

The  Contours  have  been  prepared  with  the  greatest  care  from 
Governmental  and  other  Surveys,  and  these  Maps  will  certainly  rank 
as  one  of  the  most  popular,  useful,  and  satisfactory  aids  for  carrying 
out  modern  ideas  of  teaching  Geography.

Publishers'  Circular 

"Better  School  Books" 

"The  Eye  as  an  Aid  to  Memory" 
For  many  years  past,  in  onr  Educational 
numbers — (they  are  called  so  because 
they  contain  the  announcements  of  the 
principal  educational  publishers  and  are 
sent  to  .the  principal  schoolmasters) — 
we  have  urged  upon  the  makers  of 
school  books  the  need  for  more  considera- 
tion for  young  eyes  and  young  brains. 

Without  for  a  moment  claiming  that 
The  Publishers'  Circular  has  been 
more  than  one  of  many  influences  which 
have  brought  about  an  improvement,  we 
may  at  least  claim  that  it  has  helped. 
If  you  hold  a  view  strongly  and  are 

in  a  position  to  put  it  plainly  before 
many  thousands  of  people  who  are 
interested  in  the  subject,  some  result 
must  follow — though  it  does  not  follow 
that  the  result  is  what  you  wish  always. 
But  on  this  particular  question  there 
surely  can  be  no  two  opinions :  the 
object  of  school  books  being  to  give 
information,  the  better  they  are  adapted 
to  the  purpose  the  sooner  will  the  object 
be  gained. 

To  give  children  books  in  small 
crowded  type  badly  arranged  is  like 
giving  soldiers  rifles  with  poor  and 
badly-adjusted  sights.  Holding  this 
view  so  strongly,  it  was  a  pleasure  to 
come  across  the  following  little  article 
in  The  Daily  Mail  the  other  day.  Its 
immense  circulation  makes  Lord  North- 
cliffe's  paper  one  of  the  greatest  educa- 
tional powers  of  the  day  : — 


"  The  striking  difference  between  the 
school  books  of  to-day  and  those  of  even 
a  few  years  ago  is  shown  at  an  exhibition 
of  the  latest  school  books  and  scientific 
instruments,  which  is  being  held  at  St. 
Paul's  School  in  connection  with  the 
annual  meeting  of  the  Incorporated 
Association  of  Assistant  Masters  in 
Secondary  Schools  on  January  8th. 

"  Greater  attention  is  now  paid  to 
the  arrangement  of  the  text,  with  a  view 
to  its  being  easily  '  visualised,'  so  that 
the  eye  assists  the  brain  in  the  task  of 

"  Not  only  is  the  letterpress  clearer  in 
the  modern  text  book,  but  the  margins 
are  wider  and  the  type  is  differentiated 
to  distinguish  between  subject  matter  of 
greater  and  less  importance. 

"  The  old  days  of  badly-printed 
grammars  filled  with  crabbed  text,  and 
of  lexicons  in  type  so  small  as  to  be  a 
serious  strain  upon  the  eyesight  of  the 
young,  are  past,  with  great  benefit  to  the 
convenience  both  of  master  and  pupil. 

"  Among  the  new  school  books  of 
interest  in  the  exhibition  is  the  com- 
mencement of  a  series  of  county  geo- 
graphies, which  deal  brightly  and  fully 
with  the  geology,  history,  manufactures, 
and  notabilities  of  the  counties  of  which 
they  treat. 

"  A  new  line  in  English  literature  is 
followed  in  a  well-annotated  edition  of 
some  of  the  less  well-known  works  of 
English  prose  writers,  such  as  Hazlitt's 
i  '  Characters  of  Shakespeare's  Plays  '  and 
Defoe's  '  Memoirs  of  a  Cavalier.'  " 

A  visit  to  the  exhibition  showed  that 
great  improvement  is  being  made  in 
many  ways  in  the  matter  of  school-book 
production,  and  encourages  the  hope 
that  books  which  are  badly  adjusted  for 
the  sight  and  understanding  of  the  young 
will  disappear  from  our  schools. 

Education  in  Rifle 

One;  of  the  most  important  and  satis- 
factory educational  movements  of  recent 
years  has  been  the  formation  of  rifle 
clubs  in  the  United  Kingdom  and  in  our 
Colonics  and  Dependencies.  There  are 
thousands  of  these  clubs  now,  and  hi 
many  of  our  best  colleges  and  schools, 
in  our  large  industrial  concerns,  in  the 
staffs  of  our  chief  newspapers,  the  rifle- 
club  is  now  to  be  found.  It  is,  of  course, 
quite  possible  to  overrate  anything,  even 
the  value  of  a  quarter  of  a  million  of 
trained  rifle  shots  ;  but  it  is  equally  easy 
to  underrate  their  value.  Recently,  in 
one  of  our  daily  papers,  a  writer  stated 
his  conviction  that  fifty  thousand  seasick 
Germans  could  land  on  our  shores  and 
take  England,  and  that  our  Territorial 
Armj'-  would  be  mere  sausage-meat  for 
them.  They  would  find  it  so  indigestible 
that  they  would  soon  wish  themselves 
back  on  the  sea.  They  know  a  safer  way 
than  that. 

Education  in  History 

From  a  German  School  Book  of  [950 

"  There  was  once  a  country  called 
Great  Britain.  There  were  forty  million 
people  in  Great  Britain — very  proud 
people,  because  they  had  the  biggest 
navy  in  the  world,  and  their  navy  had 
made  them  so  great  and  rich  and  powerful 
that  nobody  for  nearly  a  hundred  years 
had  thought  of  attacking  them.  They 
said  their  navy  must  be  double  as  strong 
as  any  other  navy  and  ten  per  cent, 
over — (the  Conservatives  created  the 
'  double  standard  '  and  the  Liberals 
added  the  ten  per  cent,  margin).  They 
said  they  had  the  ships,  and  the  men, 
and  the  money — and  '  Let  'em  all 
come  !  ' 

"  And  one  fine  morning  they  did 
come.  And  then  these  proud  Great 
Britons  discovered  that  though  they 
had  the  ships  and  the  men  and  the 
money  they  hadn't  got  any  food — not  in 
the  country.  They  had  nearly  all  their 
bread  stored  for  them  in  foreign  countries, 
thousands  of  miles  away,  instead  of 
having  it  stored  in  their  own  islands,  as 
they  easily  might  have  done. 

"  These  proud  Britons  had  never 
dreamed  of  being  hit  below  the  belt  ; 
they  said  it  was  not  fair  fighting  to 
destroy  their  foodships  and  run  away 
from  their  warships  ;  and  they  began  to 
get  very  hungry  and  angry.  And  they 
sent  to  their  Prime  Minister,  who  was 
playing  golf  on  Plymouth  Hoe,  to  ask 
where  their  food  fleet  was.  And  he  said  he 
could  not  see  it,  because  it  was  not  in 
sight ;  but  they  need  not  fear,  he  had 
wired  to  Canada  for  a  million  tons  of 
,  wheat   and    to    Australia    for  another 


The    Publishers'   Circulai       January  16,  i9o9 

million,  and,  with  luck,  they  would  get 
some  of  it  through  in  a  month  or  two. 
And  he  went  on  to  finish  his  game,  caught 
cold,  and  then  went  off  to  Biarritz,  and 
said  nothing  but  very  urgent  communica- 
tions were  to  be  sent  on  to  him.  But  he 
left  forty  million  empty  stomachs  behind. 

"  Then  Lord  Roberts,  at  the  head  of 
a  million  empty  soldiers,  marched  to  the 
Houses  of  Parliament,  and  he  said. 
'  Take  that  Bauble  away  !  Where  is  the 
key  of  the  Corn  Stores  ?  '  But  nobody 
could  find  it,  and  Mr.  Winsome  Churchill 
said  the  Prime  Minister  had  gone  off 
with  it.  So  they  broke  open  the  door  and 
found  nothing  but  Blue  Books  on  '  Food 
Supplies  for  War  Time.' 

"  Then  Lord  Roberts  got  a  telegram 
from  the  German  Emperor,  with  a  plan 
of  campaign,  saying,  '  Trust  me,  I  am 
your  true  friend.  Give  me  your  fleet,  and 
I  will  give  you  food.'  And  Lord  Roberts 
gave  him  the  fleet  ;  it  was  no  use,  it 
was  starving. 

"  And  that  is  why  we  are  all  now 
served  by  English  waiters  in  our  German 
hotels.  And  that  part  of  our  Empire  is 
now  called  Germanglia,  and  fifty  per 
cent,  of  our  best  corn  is  grown  there  for 
us  by  our  English  subjects,  who  also 
bake  our  bread  for  us  and  eat  our  black 
bread  and  horse  flesh. 

"  And  the  last  King  of  England  was 
called  '  Lackbread,'  for  it  was  in  his 
time  they  were  conquered  by  famine. 
But  it  was  the  Lackbrains,  his  ministers, 
who  caused  the  downfall  of  him  and  his 
proud  people.  They  said  it  would  '  upset 
the  corn  trade  '  in  peace  time  if  they 
stored  corn  for  war  time.  So  they  slept 
on,  letting  thirty-five  millions  out  of 
their  forty  millions  exist  on  a  few  weeks' 
supply  of  foreign  food,  with  nothing  to 
keep  them  alive  hi  war  time.  But  hanging 
them  did  no  good  :  it  was  too  late.  If 
they  had  taught  in  their  schools  that 
money  and  ships  and  men  are  no  good 
without  bread,  then  England  would  be 
England  still,  instead  of  being  in  Ger- 
many. This  shows  what  school  books 
can  do." 

The  Visit  of  the  French 
Assistants  to  London 

Last  week  we  gave,  in  French,  extracts 
from  the  account  which  our  French 
friends  have  published,  in  which  they 
refer  so  sincerely,  and  warmly,  and 
charmingly  to  the  kindness  with  which 
they  were  received  when  in  England. 
One  of  our  readers  has  suggested  that  we 
might  repeat  the  account  in  English,  but 
we  had  already  last  July  devoted  several 
columns  to  describing  the  visit  in  English. 
Surely  every  bookseller's  assistant  knows 
enough  French  to  read  a  simple  account 
such  as  that  referred  to  ;  if  they  do  not. 

then  it  is  their  misfortune — if  not  their 
fault — and  they  ought  to  begin  to  learn  at 
once,  especially  as  they  are  expected  to 
return  the  visit  of  our  French  friends, 
and  to  understand  something  of  the  lan- 
guage will  certainly  add  to  the  pleasure 
of  their  visit.  Let  us  add  the  following 
sentence  from  the  message  in  French  sent 
by  Mr.  Edwin  Pearce,  Hon.  Sec.  of  the 
Associated  Booksellers,  to  the  French 
Committee  : — 

"  Vive  l'Entente  Cordiale  !  qu'elle 
devienne  encore  plus  assuree  pour  le 
bonheur  de  nos  cheres  patries  !  " 

As  only  one  of  our  readers  has  asked  for 
a  translation,  and  as  he  knows  French, 
we  think  it  will  be  unnecessary  to  give  a 
translation,  but  will  with  pleasure  do  so 
even  if  only  half-a-dozen  of  our  readers 
are  unable  to  read  French,  and  say  so. 

Notes  and  Announcements 

"  Anne  of  Green  Gables  "  (published 
this  week  by  Sir  Isaac  Pitman  &  Sons, 
Ltd.)  will  soon  be  spreading  over  the 
kingdom  like  a  lovely  April  day — all 
sunshine  and  showers.  It  is  an  idyl  of 
Prince  Edward  Island  by  L.  M.  Mont- 
gomery. Anne  steps  out  of  her  book  and 
captivates  the  reader  just  as  she  does 
everyone  in  the  story.  Books  which 
' '  boom  ' '  in  America  do  not  always  do  so 
here,  but  this  one  will.  The  Prince 
Edward  Islanders  ought  to  be  proud  of 
"Anne  of  Green  Gables."  To  most  people, 
we  fear,  so  far  their  island  has  been 
little  more  than  a  name  and  a  charming 
Black  Prince  on  a  postage  stamp,  the 
King  as  a  boy  in  Highland  costume.  Now 
we  shall  know  it  as  a  land  of  violets  and 
apple  blossom,  of  charming  people  and 
of  irresistible  Amie — with  the  e,  she 
insisted  on  that.  The  humour  is  de- 
licious and  the  writing  admirable. 

Mr.  Heinemami  amiounces  for  publi- 
cation on  the  28th  a  new  volume  of 
"  Memoirs,"  by  Baron  de  Freuilly,  who 
lived  in  the  years  1768-1828.  The  book 
is  one  of  exceptional  interest,  as  th  • 
Baron  started  under  the  Royalist  regime 
and  survived  the  Terror,  to  be  made  a 
peer  of  France  at  the  Restitution.  The 
Baron  thus  lived  through  the  most 
interesting  period  of  any  history  in  the 
world,  and  as  a  man  of  good  education 
his  writing  has  all  the  charm  of  the 
brilliant  society  of  those  days.  There  is 
an  introduction  by  M.  Arthur  Chuquet, 
Membre  de  I'Institut. 

The  book  of  Mr.  Piuero's  play,  "  The 
Thunderbolt,"  which  was  produced  last 
year  at  the  St.  James's  Theatre  with 
great  success,  is  to  be  published  by  Mr. 
Heinemami  on  the  J  [St. 

Books  which  Messrs.  Macinillan  have 
ready,  or  just  ready,  are:  "  One  Immor- 
tality," a  novel,  by  Mr.  H.  Fielding  Hall — 
(  "There  are  three  loves,"  says  the  author, 
"  that  make  and  keep  the  world  :  the 
love  of  man  and  woman,  the  love  that 
draws  families  into  nations,  and  the  love 

that  holds  the  world  to  God.  This  book 
is  about  the  first  ") — ;  revised  edition,  in 
the  charming  Eversley  Series,  of  Professor 
Walter  Raleigh's  volume  on  Shake- 
speare ;  "  The  Religion  of  the  Conunon 
Man."  by  Sir  Henry  Wrixon  ;  a  little 
volume  by  the  Bishop  of  Southwark, 
entitled  "The  Fulness  of  Christ";  an 
important  work,  illustrated,  on  "  The 
Acropolis  at  Athens."  by  an  American 
scholar,  Dr.  M.  L.  D'Ooge  ;  and  a  work 
on  "  The  County  Lieutenancies  and  the 
Army,  1803- 18 14,"  which  is  written  by 
the  Hon.  J.  W.  Fortescue,  and  may  be 
described  as  an  "  overflow  "  from  his 
"  History  of  the  British  Army."  In  view 
of  the  light  thrown  on  the  subject  of  the 
recruiting  of  the  Army  during  the  Boer 
War,  the  publication  of  Mr.  Fortescue's 
new  work  has  been  specially  approved  by 
the  Secretary  of  State  for  War. 

Books  which  Messrs.  Longmans, 
Green  &  Co.  have  nearly  ready  are  : — 
I  "  The  Scottish  Staple  at  Yeere  :  a  Study 
I  in  the  Economic  History  of  Scotland,"

(Edin.),  and  Alexander  Gray,  M.A.,  with 
numerous  illustrations.  ''  Vectors  and 
Vector  Diagrams,  applied  to  the  Alternat- 
ing Current  Circuit  ;  with  Examples  on

with  113  diagrams.  "Unemployment:

Mr.  Eveleigh  Nash  is  publisliiug  a 
book  entitled  "  A  Favourite  of  Napo- 
leon," being  the  English  translation  of 
"  Memoires  of  Mademoiselle  George." 
Her  candid  criticisms  of  Napoleon,  Jose- 
phine, the  Emperor  Alexander  of  Russia. 
Madame  De  Stael,  and  others,  brin<^ 
fresh  light  upon  the  events  of  this  deeply- 
interesting  period  and  make  the  book 
one  of  the  most  remarkable  Napoleonic 
documents  of  recent  times.  Mr.  Nash 
also  publishes  the  following  novels : 
"The  Whispering  Man,"  by  H.  K 
Webster,  and  "  After  the  Pardon."  by 
Matilde  Serao. 

"  Fairbairn's  Book  of  Crests  "  will  be 
re-issued  immediately  by  Messrs.  Jack 
at  a  popular  price.  As  this  standard  work 
has  always  been  somewhat  costly  it  will 
be  good  news  to  many  engravers,  draughts- 
men and  designers  that  the  work  contain- 
ing all  the  latest  revisions  and  additions 
will  shortly  be  obtainable  at  a  very 
moderate  figure.  The  latest  edition 
which  is  to  be  re-issued  contains  no  tesn  t 
than  5 .000  engravings  and  30,000  entries. 

Mr.  Charles  Battall  Loomis  has  won  a 
high  reputation  in  the  I'm  ted  States  as  a 
humorist,  and  the  announcement  of  a  new 
volume  of  stories  from  his'  pen  is  of 
interest.  It  is  entitled  "  A  Holiday  Touch 
and  Other  Tales  of  Undaunted  Ameri- 
cans." and  is  full  of  that  odd  combination 
of  American  buoyancy  and  unobtrusive 
pathos  wliich  is  Mr.  Loomis's  greatest

January  16,  1909       The    Publishers'  Circular 


Messrs.  George  Bell  &  Sons  announce 
for  immediate  publication  :  "  Canadian 
Types  of  the  Old  Regime,"  by  Professor 
C.  W.  Colby,  who  occupies  the  chair  of 
History  in  McGill  University,  Montreal, 
and  who  thoroughly  understands  the 
attitude  of  French  Canadians  towards 
their  own  past.  "  Builders  of  United 
Italy,"  by  R.  S.  Holland.  An  attempt  to 
provide  a  popular  introduction  to  the 
studv  of  one  of  the  most  fascinating 
periods  of  modern  European  history. 
Portraits  of  great  interest  are  included  in 
the  work. 

Messrs  Bell's  edition  of  Iceland's 
"Itinerary"  is  fast  approaching  com- 
pletion. The  fourth  volume,  containing 
Parts  VII.  and  VIII.  of  the  "  Itinerary," 
was  published  on  January  13th,  and  the 
fifth  and  last  volume  will,  it  is  hoped,  be

The  Romance  of  the  East  Series,  the 
first  volume  of  which  is  to  be  issued 
immediately  by  Mr.  John  Murray,  at 
the  modest  price  of  2s.  6d.,  is  sure  of  a 
warm  welcome  from  all  who  are  in- 
terested in  romance,  or  attracted  by 
the  call  and  glamour  of  the  East.  In 
this  series  the  great  storehouses  of 
Oriental  romance  will  be  opened  for  the 
first  time  to  the  public.  Tales  from  the 
Sanscrit,  from  the  Chinese,  from  every 
language  of  the  East  possessing  a  great 
literature  will  appear  in  due  course. 
From  these  vivid  narratives  of  old-world 
romance  it  will  be  possible  for  the  reader 
to  glean  much  information  of  vanished  j 
races  and  the  greatness  of  Empires  that 
have  passed  away.  Mr.  Claud  Field,  in 
"Tales  of  the  Caliphs,"  gives  us  the 
genuine  romance  of  history,  authentic  j 
anecdotes  of  Caliphs  of  Bagdad  and 
Cordova,  and  marvellous  adventures  of 
Haroun-al-Rasclnd, concerning  which  even 
"The  Arabian  Nights"  is  silent.  Sir 
Arthur  Wollaston,  in  "Tales  Within 
Tales,"  has  retold  in  simple  yet  pic- 
turesque English  the  delightful  animal 
stories  of  Pilpai.  Others  are  to  follow 
from  the  pens  of  Mr.  Stanley  Lane  Poole, 
Dr.  Bamett,  Mr.  Lionel  Giles,  &c.

sary, index  and  map,  by  Mr.  A.  W. 
Wade-Evans.  The  book  is  intended 
primarily  for  the  student  of  the  pohtical 
history  of  Wales,  but  it  will  probably 
interest  a  much  larger  public. 

Mr.  John  Milne  informs  us  that  his 
new  work  "  How  to  Skate  on  Rollers," 
by  Rinker  (is.  net,  cloth  is.  6d.),  owing 
to  the  large  number  of  subscription  orders,

be  made  as  soon  as  possible. 

The  Oxford  University  Press  is  about 
to  publish  a  volume  entitled,  "  The 
Moral  System  of  Dante's  Inferno."  Mr. 
W.  H.  V.  Reade,  the  author,  thinks  that 
there  is  still  an  opening  for  students  to 
modify,  or  even  to  revolutionise,  some  of 
the  common  opinions  concerning  the 
"  Divine  Comedy." 

Messrs.  Seeley  &  Co.  will  shortly  pub- 
lish tliree  thnely  books  : — "A  British

and  Turkish  Arabia,"  by  M.  E.  Hume 
Griffith  ;  and  "  Amongst  the  Wild  Tribes

R.N.  This  will  comprise  reprints  of  a 
series  of  articles  that  recently  appeared 
in  The  Morning  Post  and  United  Service 
Magazine,  which  were  much  commented 
on  at  the  time  they  were  published  ;  an 
appendix  will  be  added,  and  the  book 
will  be  issued  at  is.  net  in  paper  wrappers.

Messrs.  Morgan  &  Scott  have  added  a 
Consolidated  Index,  facilitating  reference 
to  any  hymn  in  the  combined  volumes. 
This  firm  is  bringing  its  whole  output  hito 
line  with  the  spirited  forward  policy 
which  we  have  been  pleased  to  observe 
during  the  past  twelve  months,  a  trans- 
formation with  which  the  late  Mr.  R.  C. 
Morgan  was  closely  associated,  and  which 
met  with  his  unqualified  approval.

indicate  a  spirited  forward  policy  on  the 
part  of  the  publishers,  Messrs.  Morgan 
&  Scott,  Ltd 

Messrs.  Ward,  Lock  &  Co.  have  ready

In  proposing  the  toast  of  "  The  King." 
the  Chairman  said  we  were  to  be  congra- 
tulated upon  having  reigning  over  us  a 
King  who  was  not  only  deeply  honoured 
and  respected  in  our  own  country,  but 
commanded  the  respect  and  admiration 
of  the  whole  world. 

After  the  toast  of  "  The  King  "  had 
been  duly  honoured,  the  Chairman  pro- 
posed the  health  of  Her  Most  Gracious 
Majesty  Queen  Alexandra,  the  Prince 
and  Princess  of  Wales  and  all  the  members 
of  the  Royal  Family. 

In  proposing  the  toast  of  "  Our 
Guests,"  the  Chairman  said  : 

"  It  is  with  great  pleasure  that  I  now 
rise  to  propose  the  toast  of  '  Our  Guests.' 
I  realise  as  I  look  round  this  brilliant 
company  that  we  are  surrounded  by 
friends  and  well-wishers,  and  certainly  it 
is  a  grand  opportunity  to  prove  to  our 
wives  and  families  that  bookselling  is  a 
terrible  business  and  the  bookseller  a 
most  hard-working  man,  especially  at  a 
public  dinner.    (Hear,  hear). 

"  It  is  difficult  among  so  man}'  guests 
to  particularise  a  few,  but  I  should  like 
on  behalf  of  the  London  members  of 
committee  to  thank  very  heartily  those 
of  our  confreres  who  have  travelled  from 
such  distant  places  as  Bristol.  Binning 
ham,  and  even  from  Newcastle,  to  take- 
part  in  our  anniversary  celebration. 

"  I  would  also  say  how  pleased  I  am  to 
welcome  representatives  of  our  leading 
newspapers.  We  only  meet  them  as  a 
rule  when  a  big  engagement  is  in  progress 
on  the  battlefield"  of  Wellington  Street 
and  it  is  only  right  that  they  should  have 
the  opportunity  of  seeing  us  under  more 
favourable  conditions,  with  the  war-paint 
washed  from  our  faces  and  the  surround- 
ings peaceful  and  fraternal. 

"  My  greatest  pleasure,  however,  this 
evening  is  to  voice  your  welcome  to  a 
gentleman  who  is  certainly  the  liighest 
dignitary  in  the  book  world  of  this 
country'  (Applause).  Dr.  Fortescue  is 
well  known  by  name  to  us  all  as  the 
Keeper  of  the  Printed  Books  of  the 


British  Museum,  and  the  author  of  those 
valuable  indices  that  have  helped  to 
make  the  contents  of  the  Museum  so 
accessible  to  the  general  reader  and 
student.  I  have  a  very  distinct  recollec- 
tion as  a  youth  of  my  first  visit  to  the 
Library,  and  the  feelings  of  awe  and 
reverence  that  filled  me  as  I  entered  the 
Reading  Room  and  looked  around  that 
vast  assemblage  of  the  literature  of  all 
ages  and  nations  are  with  me  still.  You 
•can  imagine,  then,  how  pleased  I  am  to 
have  seated  by  my  side  the  presiding 
genius  of  that  wonderful  place  and  to  be 
able  to  give  him  a  most  cordial  and 
hearty  welcome. 

"  Associated  with  Dr.  Fortescue  in  his 
work  is  another  gentleman  whom  we  are 
all  very  pleased  to  welcome.  Mr.  Barwick, 
the  Superintendent  of  the  Reading  Room, 
occupies  a  position  which  perhaps  brings 
liim  more  into  touch  with  the  general 
public,  and  while  expressing  our  pleasure 
at  his  presence,  I  am  glad  to  be  able  to 
take  the  opportunity  of  testifying  per- 
sonally to  the  unvarying  kindness  and 
courtesy  which  is  always  accorded  to 
visitors  and  readers.  I  am  not  alone  in  my 
experience,  for  similar  remarks  have  been 
made  to  me  from  many  quarters.  (Hear, 
hear,  and  applause). 

"  Before  sitting  down  I  should  like'to 
say  how  pleased  I  am  to  be  ablc.'  ;  to 
express  my  thanks  to  another  gentleman 
who  has  greatly  honoured  us  by  accepting 
our  invitation.  Mr.  Herbert  Baily — ■ 
(cheers) — the  able  editor  of  our  finest  art 
magazine,  the  Connoisseur,  is  well  known 
to  very  many  of  us,  and  esteemed  by  all. 
He  is  a  man  who  has  strong  sympathies 
for  things  antiquarian,  for  old  furniture, 
old  lace,  old  plate,  old  pictures,  old  prints, 
and  especially,  as  I  well  know,  for  old 
books.  Consequently,  his  presence  among 
antiquarian  booksellers  is  most  fitting, 
and  we  are  delighted  that  he  should  be 
in  our  company  this  evening.  (Cheers). 

"  Gentlemen,  Members  of  the  Inter- 
national Association  of  Antiquarian  Book- 
sellers, I  ask  you  to  join  me  in  drinking 
the  toast  of  '  Our  Guests,'  coupling  with 
it  the  names  of  Dr.  Fortescue  and  Mr. 

The  toast  being  duly  honoured, 
Dr.  G.  K.  Fortescue  rose  to  reply  : 

"  Mr.  Chairman,  Ladies  and  Gentle- 
men, who  have  been  so  exceptionally 
kind  and,  I  am  afraid,  so  exceedingly 
injudicious,  as  to  ask  me  to  reply  for  the 
guests.  I  can  only  say  there  is  no  guest 
who  is  so  grateful  as  I  am  for  the  excellent 
dinner  and  delightful  entertainment  pro- 
vided for  us.  (Hear,  hear). 

"  In  responding  to  this  toast,  I  may 
say  that  I  represent  an  institution  which 
I  suppose  is  more  deeply  indebted  to  the 
antiquarian  booksellers  of  London  than 
any  private  collection  or  anything  else 
in  the  world.  I  could  gladly  quote  a 
hundred  instances  in  which  the  book- 
sellers of  London  and  of  the  United 
Kingdom  have  shown  a  spirit  of  extra- 
ordinary generosity  and  patriotism  in 
dealing  with  the  Museum.  (Hear,  hear). 
I  could  tell  you  again  and  again  of  books 
which  the  Museum  could  never  have 
purchased  if  it  had  had  to  go  into  the 
open  market,  but  which  have  been  offered 
to  them  by  the  booksellers,  many  of 
whom  are  present  this  evening. 

"  I  saw  in  one  paper  to-day  that  the 
British  Museum  now  contained  about 
thirty-five  miles  of  bookshelves  and  two 
million  of  books.  That  was  a  tremendous 
under-statement.  The  number  of  books 
was  nearer  four  million  than  three  million, 
and  our  shelves  extend  to  forty-eight 
miles.  (Applause).  If  it  were  possible  to 
estimate  all  books  printed  since  1800, 
I  take  it  we  have  not  more  than  a  third 
of  them,  and  it  will  take  many  hundreds 
of  years  before  we  can  say  we  have  all 
the  books  that  are  printed.  We  have 
lately  been  devothig  ourselves  to  making 
the  collection  of  incunabula  as  complete 
as  possible.  After  exertions  extending 
over  many  years  we  have  acquired  about 
ten  thousand  incunabula.  The  greatest 
number  of  books  printed  before  1 500  was 
twenty  thousand ;  some  people,  very 
good  judges,  estimated  it  at  thirty 
thousand.  This  proves  how  very  far 
from  complete  we  are  at  present. 

"  The  Museum  itself  owes  more  to 
one  bookseller  than  to  any  other  bene- 
factor,   and    I    myself   am    under  the 

MR.  B.  D.  MA3GS

International  Association  of  Antiquarian  Book 
sellers,  at  the  Criterion,  Wednesday,  Jan.  13th. 

deepest   obligation    to  that  bookseller. 
This  was  George  Thomason,  of  the  '  Rose 
and  Crown '  in  St.  Paul's  Churchyard, 
who  died  in  1665.    In  164 1  he  made  up 
,  his  mind  he  would  collect  every  book, 
pamphlet  and  newspaper  that  came  out 
I  during  that  time.  Between  164 1  and  1663 
,  he  collected  twenty-four  thousand  volumes 
■  which,  through  the  generosity  of  George 
III.,    passed   to   the    British  Museum. 
1  These  are  often  called  the  King's  Pam- 
phlets ;  I  prefer  to  call  them  Thomason 
Pamphlets.     (Hear,  hear).    Milton  pre- 
sented Thomason  with  a  copy  of  each  of 
his  works,  putting  his  name  upon  the 
title-page  of  each."  (Applause). 

Mr.  G.  F.  Barwick,  in  a  few  words, 
expressed  his  gratitude  for  having  been 
invited  and  the  pleasure  it  gave  him  to 
be  present.  He  was  grateful  for  the  kind 

words  which  had  been  spoken  respecting 
his  position  as  Superintendent  of  the 
Reading  Room.  He  was  glad  to  help 
visitors  to  the  Museum  whenever  possible, 
but  it  was  not  to  the  booksellers  he  had 
a  chance  of  offering  any  help  ;  they  knew 
far  more  about  books  than  he  did.  All 
he  could  do  really,  he  said,  was  to  help 
an  American  who  came  to  the  Museum  in 
search  of  a  pedigree,  or  some  faddist 
from  the  country  who  could  not  under- 
stand the  catalogues,  or  perhaps  som> 
man  from  Yorkshire  who  had  only  ten 
minutes  in  London  and  wanted  a  book 
in  a  hurry.  (Applause). 

Mr.  J.  T.  Herbert  Baily  then  rose  to 
propose  the  toast  of  "The  Association." 
He  said  he  was  deeply  flattered  and 
honoured  by  being  called  upon  to  propose 
this  very  important  toast.  As  he  came 
into  the  room  this  evening  he  met  an 
old  friend,  and,  being  anxious  to  discover 
a  few  notes  on  which  to  base  his  speech, 
he  asked  his  friend  for  advice  ;  where- 
upon he  was  told  to  make  it  as  brief  a> 
possible.  (Laughter.)  He  had,  however, 
discovered  a  very  important  piece  of  in- 
formation since  he  had  come  into  the 
room.  This  was  Dr.  Fortescue's  remark 
which  must  have  given  great  satisfaction 
to  members  of  the  Association — that 
there  were  forty-eight  miles  of  book- 
shelves in  the  British  Museum.  But  he 
had  said,  what  about  the  new  building 
which  was  rapidly  being  completed  ? 
Well,  Dr.  Fortescue  had  informed  hin: 
that  then  there  would  be  another  forty- 
eight  miles  of  empty  shelves  to  be  filled 

He  referred  to  the  extraordinary- 
method  adopted  by  the  Secretary  in 
inducing  him  to  give  the  toast  of  "  The 
Association."  Some  time  ago  a  distant 
voice  on  the  telephone  had  remarked 
that,  as  he  knew  everybody  in  London 
perhaps  he  could  obtain  some  important 
statesman  to  come  on  January  13th 

He  replied  that  he  should  be  only  too 
delighted,  but  he  believed  they  were 
occupied  in  making  provision  for  Old  Age 
Pensions  and  the  abolition  of  all  taxe- 
upon  books,  and  would  therefore  be 
unable  to  come.  (Laughter.)  The  Sec- 
retary then  asked  if  he  knew  any  pro- 
minent Socialists,  but  at  a  moment'.5- 
notice  he  feared  it  was  impossible.  Mr. 
Bernard  Shaw  and  those  sort  of  people 
were  very  much  in  request  and  difficult 
to  get  to  a  trade  dinner.  He  understood 
that  a  good  many  of  the  antiquarian 
booksellers  were  Socialists,  and  that  they 
had  some  arrangement  for  dividing  their 
profits.  (Laughter.)  Finally  the  Secretary 
said — would  he  do  it  himself  ?  Well,  here 
he  was  ;  and  being  here  he  thought  or 
telling  them  a  story,  but  he  was  afraid 
they  would  find  it  very  depressing.  It 
referred  to  an  American  gentleman  who 
was  a  great  buyer  of  Caxton's  and  other 
priceless  early  prints.  This  gentleman 
had  made  a  journey  to  England,  where 
he  had  sojourned  for  a  time,  no  doubt 
intent  upon  seeming  bibliographical 
treasures.  When  he  returned  to  America, 
and  his  400-h.p.  motor-car  was  waiting 
for  him  at  the  docks,  he  asked  his  negrc 
chauffeur  for  news  of  his  home  during 
his  absence.  "  Well,  Mas'r  !  "  said  the 
negro,  "it  seems  an  age  since  you  went 
from  home.   Poor  Fido's  dead."  "  What,

"  This  is  an  excellent  Elementary  Algebra  which  takes  one  as  far  as 
geometrical  progression,  with  a  short  section  on  indices  and  logarithms. 
Revision  examples  are  given  at  various  stages  ;  a  large  number  are  original 
.  .  .  easy,  simple  equations  are  introduced  early,  and  the  solution  of  the 
quadratic  equation  with  numerical  co-efficients  is  placed  before  the  solution 
of  simple  simultaneous  equations.    '  Graphs  '  are  well  treated,  and  the 
graph  illustrations  of  the  variation  of  functions,  with  special  reference  to 
the  roots  of  equations,  are  extremely  good.    The  book  should  prove  a 
valuable  addition  to  the  elementary  mathematical  school  books."

you  scoundrel  "  *  said  the  American, 
"my  favourite  dog  dead?"  "Yes, 
Mas'r  !  "  responded  the  chauffeur  ;  "  you 
see,  the  little  fellow  was  in  the  barn  when 
it  was  burnt  down."  "  What,  you 
scoundrel !  "  said  the  gentleman,  growing 
exasperated,  "  my  five-hundred  dollar 
barn,  where  I  keep  all  my  beautiful 
books,  burnt  down.  How  did  it  get 
burnt  down  ?  "  "  Well,  Mas'r,  sparks 
from  the  house  set  it  on  fire."  "  What, 
you  scoundrel !  House  on  fire.  How 
did  it  get  on  fire  ?  "  "  Well,  Mas'r, 
your  old  mother  wanted  candles  in  the 
room  when  she  died,  and  they  set  fire  to 
the  curtains."  "  What,  you  scoundrel ! 
My  mother  dead  ?  "  "  Well,"  said  this 
mournful  tale-bearer,  "  you  see,  when  she 
heard  that  your  wife  had  run  away  with 
the  gardener  she  fell  down  dead  suddenly 
from  heart  failure."  After  the  loud 
laughter  which  greeted  this  story  had 
subsided,  Mr.  Baily  said  that  they 
evidently  had  not  found  it  so  depressing 
after  all.  He  followed  with  some  good- 
humoured  banter  over  the  Association's 
change  of  nomenclature  in  the  second 
year  of  their  existence,  from  The  Second- 
hand Booksellers'  Association  to  The 
International  Association  of  Antiqua- 
rian Booksellers.  In  extenuation  of 
their  offence,  he  recalled  that  certain 
firms  in  Bond  Street  did  not  call  them- 
selves dealers  in  secondhand  pictures. 
They  call  them  "  old  masters,"  said  Mr. 
Baily  naively,  and  his  audience  roared 
with  laughter.  He  told  another  story, 
which  was  well  received,  of  a  young  col- 
lector who,  after  considerable  effort,  had 
managed  to  save  4d.  This  person  then 
went  to  a  secondhand  bookseller's  shop 
and  asked  for  a  copy  of  the  "  Last  of  the 
Mohicans,"  which  was  priced  at  is. 
After  a  lot  of  wrangling  he  secured  the 
book  for  4d. ;  then,  turning  round  to  the 
shopman,  he  exclaimed  triumphantly, 
"That's  id.  a  Mohican!"  (Laughter.) 
Subsequently  Mr.  Baily  pointed  out  that 
a  secondhand  bookseller  needed  to 
exercise  the  greatest  discrimination  in 
his  calling,  and  observed  that  only  after 
a  long  and  arduous  life  of  toil  could  he 
properly  understand  the  business  in 
which  he  was  engaged,  his  remarks  being 
warmly  endorsed  by  the  company.  He 
touched  upon  the  importance  of  the 
Association  in  uniting  them  all  together, 
and  concluded  with  a  peroration  regarding 
the  moral  and  intellectual  value  of  the 
books  sold  as  "  old,"  which  he  said  con- 
tained between  their  covers  the  greatest 
thoughts  of  the  human  race.  (Pro- 
longed applause.) 

Mr.  Henry  F.  Stevens  (Vice-President) 
in  replying  for  the  Association,  thanked 
Mr.  Baily  for  the  kind  and  eloquent 
manner  in  which  he  had  proposed  the 
toast  of  this  Association,  also  the  com- 
pany for  the  manner  in  which  they  had 
received  the  toast.  He  would  like  to  tell 
those  present  of  an  antiquarian  book- 
seller he  read  about  in  an  old  book  who 
was  requested  to  make  a  speech  or  lose 
his  head.  Contrary  to  expectation,  he 
chose  the  latter  alternative.  (Laughter.) 
Although  no  such  fate  awaited  him,  he 
was  somewhat  at  a  loss  to  know  how  to 
treat  the  subject,  because  so  much  had 
already  been  said  relating  to  this  Associa- 
tion ;  but  it  had  occurred  to  him,  if  he 
could  possibly  find  out  something  to  say 

about  booksellers  in  olden  times — pre- 
historic times — it  would  prove  interest- 
ing. (Hear,  hear. )  He  went  to  the 
British  Museum  ;  but  search  as  he  would 
among  the  forty-eight  miles  of  books,  he 
could  find  nothing  about  booksellers  of 
that  period,  so  he  came  away  wondering 
what  on  earth  he  should  speak  about. 
As  he  was  leaving  the  Museum,  he  asked 
the  porter  at  the  lodge,  "  Can  you  tell 
me  anything  about  the  booksellers  of 
Ancient  Rome  ?  "  The  porter  asked  him 
to  step  into  the  lodge,  and  said  he  thought 

I  he  could  find  something.  (Laughter.) 

'  ' '  Turning  to  a  huge  Encyclopaedia,  which 
nearly  filled  the  porter's  room,  we  found 
the  following  under  'Booksellers  in  Rome': 
'  Little  is  known  of  the  history  of  book- 
sellers in  Ancient  Rome,  but  something 
may  be  found  about  it  in  a  certain  book 
of  Livy.'  Unfortunately,  our  copy  of 
that  work  has  been  lost,  and  on  making 
inquiries,  we  find  everybody  else's  copy 
is  lost.  (Laughter.)  So  it  appeared  useless 

!  to  try  to  trace  that  source.  Everything 
comes  to  him  who  waits,  however,  and  a 
day  or  two  afterwards  I  happened  to  be 
looking  through  some  old  books,  when,  to 
my  surprise,  what  should  I  find  but  a 
copy  of  the  lost  book  of  Livy.  (Laughter.) 
I  found  it  was  printed  in  Rome  in  the 

'  year  a.d.  5  B.C.  (Laughter.)  On  turning 
this  over  to  see  if  I  could  find  anything 

;  about  booksellers,  I  came  across  a 
description   of  bookselling   which  con- 

{  vinced  me  that  our  society  of  the  present 

j  day  is  a  re-incarnation  of  the  society 
which  existed  at  Rome  nearly  2,000 
years  ago.  (Laughter.)  Wlien  I  tell  you 
the  officers  of  that  society  dwelt  in  the 
same  towns,  and  lived  in  the  same  streets, 
and  their  names  were  the  same,  making 
allowance  for  the  transition  of  the  Latin 
roots,  Latin  roots  became  merged  in  the 

'  Gaelic,  Teutonic,  &c,  you  will,  I  am  sure, 
be  convinced  that  there  is  no  room  for 
doubt.  I  will  instance  a  few  : — 

Praeses  super  ripam. — The  President 
(Mr.  Maggs)  dwelling  on  the  banks  of  the 
river — i.e.,  the  Strand.  I) 

Sobrius  M agus — the  sober  and  learned 
one.  Livy  was  evidently  so  struck  with 
the  virtues  of  this  extraordinary  man 
that  he  breaks  forth  into  verse  in  his 
honour  : — 

Sine  qua  non  et  librorum 

Pro  bono  publico  pons  asinorum 

Etiam  quantum  suff  Cockalorum. 

A  passage  I  found  extremely  difficult 
to  render  into  English  verse,  but  catching 
the  evident  spirit  of  the  Latin,  I  respect- 
fully submit  : — 

His  learning  it  was  deep 
And  his  sobriety  was  such 

He  never  drank  a  cocktail  for 

Fear  he'd  take  too  much.  (Laughter.) 
j  Who  can  doubt  the   ancestry  of  our 
esteemed  President  ? 

Cuslos    thesauri    in    foro  feni — the 
guardian  of  the  treasure — dwelling  in  the 
[  Market  of  Hay. 

Tomaeus  Confabularius — Thomas  the 
Chatterer.  Evidently  the  progenitor  of 
our  well-loved  Treasurer,  Thomas  Chatto, 
whose  words  of  wisdom  carry  such  weight 
when  in  our  monthly  conclaves  he 
addresses  us  on  the  solemn  matter  of  the 
reckoning  of  our  sestertice. 

Scriba — the  Secretary. 

Franciscus  Cams  Laci — the  free  and 

easy  one  of  the  Lake.  Evidently  the 
ancestor  of  our  worthy  Secretary,  Mr. 
Frank  Karslake,  who  evidently  believes 
in  keeping  the  Lake  business  in  the 
family,  for  I  see  with  him  the  Lady  of  the 
Lake,  also  the  Lakelets — all  residing  in 
Pond  Street  !  (Laughter.) 

Gualtherus  Laterna — Walter  the  Lan- 
tern. Evidently  of  the  family  of  our 
Walter  Leighton,  that  bright  shining 
lantern  of  learning  we  hope  shortly  to  see 
guiding  this  Association  from  the  Pre- 
sidential chair.  (Applause.) 

Benignus  Dolabellus — which  can 
only  translate  as  the  '  kindly  and  hand- 
some one,  with  the  dollars,'  evidently  an 
ancestor  of  our  one-and-only  Bertram 
Dobell.  (Laughter.) 

Georgio  Gregario  cum  globis — George 
the  Herder — evidently  of  books,  if  one 
recollects  the  immense  stock  now  in  the 
possession  of  our  worthy  Consul  at  Bath 
Cum  globis  would  suggest  maps  or  globes 
but  I  think  it  refers  rather  to  the  family 
fondness  for  bowls  and  skittles.  (Laugh- 

Gulielmus  Phimosis  ex  mediis  comi- 
tatibus — William  the  Downy-one,  from 
the  Midland  Settlements.  Evidently  the 
ancestor  of  our  genial  Consul  from 

Josephus  Jucundus — the  Jovial  Joseph 

Gulielmus  Favonius  et  Filii — William 
Westerly  Wind  &  Sons. 

Jacobus  Tenuis — James  Thin,  of  Edin- 

I  lie  caverni  leonorum — He  from  the  den 
of  lions.  The  undoubted  ancestor  of  our 
Walter  Daniel.  I  once  knew  a  Mr. 
Daniel  whose  wife's  name  was  Leonora 
Daniel,  another  instance  of  keeping  tfu 
lion-taming  business  in  the  family. 

Carolus  Serrarius — Charles  the  Saw 


Gulielmus  Fasciculorum — William  of 
the  Bundles  or  Faggots  — hence  Wm. 

Gulielmus  Fabulator  ex  comitate  Lan- 
castrice — The  tale  pitcher  '  who  coomes 
fra'  Lancasheere.' 

Cuslodes  principales  librorum  fr aires — 
The  brothers,  the  chief  custodians  or 
warders  of  books  —  evidently  'in  tin 
vernacular  the  'chief  or  'ead  wards.'  — 
(Laughter. ) 

Albus  omnis  meus  oculus  cum  specu- 
laria  nova — The  white  or  innocent  one  ; 
all  my  eye.  I  failed  to  identify  him  at 
first,  but  the  clue  comes  in  specularia 
nova.  I  thought  at  first  this  meant  '  with 
new  speculations,'  but  more  literally  I 
think  it  can  best  be  rendered  '  with  a 
new  window.'  Hence,  we  get  our  es- 
teemed colleague,  Albert  My-eye-ers. 
(Oh  !  Oh  !  and  laughter.) 

Ex  officio  Dux  tres  coloniarum — A 
member  of  the  committee  by  reason  of 
his  office,  the  leader  of  the  three  colonies. 
What  can  this  mean  ?  I  almost  despaired 
of  solving  it,  but  the  interpretation 
dawned  upon  me  suddenly,  and  I  flatter 
myself  I  have  made  one  of  the  most 
important  and  interesting  bibliographical 
and  historical  discoveries  of  the  age. 
(Laughter.)  Strange  and  incredible  as 
it  may  appear,  we  have  in  those  few 
mysterious  words  evidence  that  the 
"  knock  out  "  was  known  to  the  Ancients

The    Publishers"  Circular 


— nay,  more,  practised  in  the  most 
scientific  and  up-to-date  method  of 
modem  times.  Gentlemen,  you  have  only 
to  find  the  synonym  of  'Colonies,'  and  the 
phrase  becomes  as  clear  as  day  :  '  The 
master  of  the  three  settlements.'  I  am 
glad  to  be  able  to  tell  our  friends  and 
guests  that  no  such  office  exists  in  our 
Society  ;  in  fact,  there  is  no  necessity 
for  it,  as  all  such  practices  died  a  natural 
death  on  the  advent  of  the  new  system 
«f  selling  books  by  the  thousand  words  or 
by  weight.  (laughter.) 

Last  but  not  least  on  the  list  comes 
Jacobus  Tveoscula — James  Three-kisses. 
Clearly  the  ancestor  of  our  genial  James. 
In  the  transmigration  of  this  family  to 
Cornubia  the  Latin  name  became  merged 
in  the  Celtic,  and  odulum  became  kiss. 
But  Trekiss  would  sound  silly,  so  another 
attribute  of  the  family  had  to  be  added 
to  the  patronymic  ;  hence  we  get  Tre- 
gaskis.  (Laughter.)  You  will  all 
thoroughly  recognise  the  wisdom  of  the 
committee  in  choosing  our  genial  James 
to  respond  to  the  toast  of  '  The  Ladies,' 
for  what  could  be  more  suitable  for  the 
purpose  than  natural  gas  and  kisses  ? 

Mr.  Albert  Myers  then  rose  to  propose 
the  toast,  "The  Ladies."  "On  looking 
around  me,"  he  said,  "  I  think  it  would  be 
politic  to  describe  this  as  the  toast  of 
the  evening.  It  is  just  a  fortnight  ago 
since  I  was  threatened  with  this  honour, 
and  from  that  day  to  this  I  have  neither 
slept  nor  tasted  food.  (Laughter.)  But 
if  I  have  not  tasted  the  ordinary  food  I 
have  at  least  devoured  every  book  from  1 
which  I  could  gather  anything  concerning 
woman.  (Laughter.)  Having  exhausted 
my  own  stock,  I  spent  many  weary  days 
at  the  British  Museum.  I  want  to  be 
particularly  careful  not  to  exaggerate,  so 
I  won't  say  I  read  every  book.  There 
were  three  I  did  not  read.  They  were  in 
Russian.  I  have  been  exploring  the 
wisdom  of  the  centuries,  and  during  that 
time  I  have  not  come  across  a  single  man 
who  understands  woman.  (Laughter.) 
I  have  made  no  headway  in  the  study 
of  the  sex.  In  these  circumstances  I 
thought  the  best  thing  I  could  do  would 
be  to  seek  the  assistance  of  a  lady  whose 
name  has  been  heard  of  late.  So  I  wrote 
to  Mrs.  Spankhurst — (laughter) — to  ask 
her  what  I  should  say.  Her  reply  was 
characteristic.    She  says  : — 

Dear  Sir, — I  am  obliged  by  yours 
of  the  4th  inst.,  and  could  not  help 
smiling  at  your  childlike  simplicity  in 
thinking  you  could  understand  the  sex, 
of  which  I  am  so  worthy  a  member. 
The  man  who  could  has  not  been  born. 
You  have  probably  heard  of  a  book 
called  '  The  Light  of  the  World.' 
Well !  that  is  another  name  for 
woman.  And  what  a  part  she  has 
played  in  the  life  of  the  Universe. 
Without  her  the  Albert  Hall  would 
have  closed  its  doors,  and  Caxton  Hall 
would  have  been  in  the  hands  of  the 
receivers.  I  am  unable  to  speak  of 
myself ;  my  virtues  are  known  and 
appreciated  by  every  member  of  the 
Universe.  (Laughter.) 

I  have  said  that  we  do  not  understand 
woman.  But  upon  one  thing  I  think  we 
are  all  agreed  :  that  woman  is  the  poetry 
of  the  world  in  the  sense  that  the  stars 
are  the  poetry  of  Heaven.  (Hear,  hear.) 
Clear,  light-giving  and  harmonious,  they 

are  the  terrestrial  planets  that  govern 
mankind,  and  I  am  convinced  of  the 
hearty  response  you  will  give  to  this 
toast  of  '  The  Ladies  and  Mr.  James 
Tregaskis.'  "    (Prolonged  applause.) 

Replying    for    "The    Ladies,"  Mr. 
Tregaskis  said  : 

Mr.  Myers  and  Gentlemen. — Some 
time  ago,  meeting  the  Chairman.  I  asked 
if  I  could  be  put  on  to  a  toast  for  the 
dinner,  and  was  given  this  pleasant  task 
of  replying  for  the  ladies.  I  worked  at  it, 
and  have  worked  at  it  for  six  months,  to 
make  it  go  with  a  swing.  (Laughter.) 
I  have  tackled  Dr.  Fortescue's  forty-eight  ! 
miles  of  literature,  I  have  resorted  to  I 
dear  old  Burton.  I  read,  I  made  copies,  j 
extracts  :  I  wrote  the  thing  about  forty 
times.  I  got  it  typewritten,  and  then 
I  read  it  to  the  children.  They  said, 
'  Father,  it's  lovely  !  '  (Laughter).  But 
of  course  one  gets  from  one's  family 
circle  all  sorts  of  compliments.  I  thought 
the  best  thing  to  do  would  be  to  go 
outside.  I  went  to  dear  old  Karslake.  It 
was  in  nice  form,  nicely  written,  it  was 
epigrammatic,  it  was  fine,  it  was  litera- 
ture. He  said,  '  My  dear  boy,  the  girls 
will  like  it,  the  women  will  like  it  ;  but 
the  men  won't  have  it  at  all.  It's  too 
thick  !  '  I  have  chucked  up  fishing  in 
Norway  for  it.    I  thought  it  alright. 

"Mr.  Myers  and  Gentlemen. — You 
have  talked  very  nicely  about  the  ladies, 
but  you  are  not  to  bamboozle  us.  We  are 
women,  we  are  mothers,  we  are  daughters, 
we  are  sweethearts — I  am  not  a  Suffra- 
gette— and  I  want  to  talk  to  you  about 
domestic  matters.  (Oh,  oh.)  What  do 
you  do  from  the  time  you  leave  home 
about  tight  o'clock  in  the  morning,  till 
the  time  you  get  home  ?  You  go  away 
with  a  little  black  bag  and  you  go  to 
your  Russell  Street,  you  go  to  your 
Strand,  or  to  your  Brewer  Street,  or  your 
Charing  Cross  Road  ;  and  you,  Albert 
tin  Good,  you  go  to  your  Holborn — or 
you  say  you  do  !  I  want  to  know  what 
you  do.  (Laughter.)  We  are  women, 
mothers,  daughters,  sisters.  What  do 
you  do  ?  Shame  on  you  !  You  return  at 
twelve  o'clock  at  night,  reeking  of  cigars, 
hands  covered  with  chalk  !  We  are 
women,  and  we  have  our  feelings  !  Tell 
us  what  you  do  !  (Laughter.) 

"  Mr.  Myers  and  Gentlemen. — We  are 
not  cross — we  thank  you  for  what  you 
have  said  ;  but  will  you  ask  us  next 
year  ?  If  so,  on  behalf  of  the  ladies, 
I  thank  you." 

The  toast  of  "The  Trade  Journals," 
coupled  with  the  names  of  Mr.  Marston, 
Mr.  Murray  and  Mr.  Whitaker,  was  then 
proposed  by  Mr.  E.  F.  Wesley  : 

' '  There  is  another  trade  journal 
which  I  suppose  our  esteemed  secretary 
represents,  and  therefore,  with  your 
permission,  I  should  like  to  add  Mr. 
Karslake's  name.  I  think  this  is  a  verry 
happy  opportunity  of  thanking  the 
trade  journals  collectively  and  personally 
for  their  intelligent  advocacy  of  every- 
thing that  is  best  for  the  Trade  in  all 
its  departments.  (Applause.) 

"  We  owe  much  to  their  accuracy  and 
their  kindness  in  all  their  dealings,  and 
we  have  to  thank  them  for  joining  in  the 
committee  and  for  their  advice. 

"  The  Bookseller  has  had  a  very  long 
career,  so  has  The  Publishers'  Circular, 
The  Clique  not  so  long,  but  equally  useful, 
and   also    The   Book    Auction  Records. 

(Applause).  They  do  their  work  and 
help  us,  and  we  thank  them  most  heartily 
for  all  their  kindness  and  for  all  that 
they  have  done  for  us,  and  I  would  wish 
you  now  to  join  with  me  in  drinking  the 
toast  of  '  The  Trade  Journals,'  repre- 
sented by  Mr.  Whitaker,  Mr.  Marston, 
Mr.  Murray  and  Mr  Karslake." 

Replying  on  behalf  of  The  Bookseller, 
Mr.  G.  H.  Whitaker  said  that  last  year 
when  he  proposed  the  toast  he  ventured 
to  predict  a  very  brilliant  future  for  the 
Association.  He  felt  sure,  from  the 
progress  that  it  had  made  during  the  last 
twelve  months,  that  what  he  had  foretold 
last  year  had  been  very  amply  fulfilled. 
Such  a  large  gathering  as  that  present 
gave  the  most  hopeful  promise  of  a 
brilliant  future. 

Mr.  F.  Walton  Marston,  responding 
for  The  Publishers'  Circular,  said  : 

"  Mr.  Chairman,  Ladies  and  Gentle- 
men.— -As  the  representative  of  one  of  the' 
trade  journals  included  in  the  toast, 
I  thank  you  all  most  heartily  for  the  kind 
way  in  which  you  have  received  it.  I  am 
sorry  my  father,  Mr.  R.  B.  Marston,  was 
unable  to  be  present  this  evening,  for  he 
would  have  done  much  more  justice  to 
the  occasion  than  I  possibly  could. 
I  may  mention,  although  it  may  not 
interest  you,  that  this  is  the  first  occasion 
I  have  been  called  upon  to  speak  in 
public.  I  hope,  therefore,  you  will 
receive  what  I  have  to  say  with  very 
great  indulgence.  (Applause.)  I  may 
add  that  until  four  o'clock  this  afternoon 
I  had  no  idea  I  might  be  called  upon  to 
say  anything,  and  this  fact  has  weighed 
very  heavily  on  my  mind  the  whole 
evening.  Were  it  not  for  fear  of  the 
awful  fate  of  the  Antiquarian  Bookseller 
referred  to  by  Mr.  Stevens  I  would  have 
tried  to  escape.  I  thank  you  all.  ladies 
and  gentlemen,  for  your  kind  appreciation 
of  the  toast."  (Applause). 

Mr.  Murray,  replying  for  The  Clique, 
in  the  course  of  an  interesting  and 
amusing  speech  stated  that  he  also  was 
not  aware  that  he  would  be  expected  to 
say  anything  and  had  come  quite  un- 
prepared. He  reminded  the  members  of 
the  I.A.A.B.  that  it  was  he  who  suggested 
the  alteration  of  title  from  ' '  secondhand  ' ' 
to  "  antiquarian."  "  Secondhand  "  was 
a  phrase  he  did  not  like  at  all ;  it  did  not 
sound  nearly  so  impressive  and  important 
as  "  antiquarian  "  !  (Laughter.)  The 
flourishing  state  of  the  Association  was 
very  gratifying,  and  he,  in  common  with 
the  other  trade  paper  representatives 
included  in  the  toast,  would  do  all  he 
could  to  promote  their  interests. 

Mr.  James  Tregaskis  proposed  the 
health  of  "  The  Chairman,"  and,  after 
the  reply,  Mr.  Karslake,  in  an  able  and 
telling  speech,  stated  how  gratifying  it 
was  to  all  connected  with  the  Association 
to  see  so  many  members  and  friends 
present.  He  referred  in  warm  terms  to 
the  guests  for  their  brilliant  and  enter- 
taining speeches,  and  whilst  disclaiming 
that  the  publication  he  was  connected  with 
was  a  trade  journal,  he  joined  the  trade 
journals  in  their  expressions  of  goodwill. 

The  thanks  of  all  were  due  to  the 
artistes  for  the  splendid  musical  enter- 
tainment, to  the  Hon.  Sec.  of  the 
Association  (Mr.  Frank  Karslake),  and 
the  Dinner  Committee  for  the  way  they 
have  again  worked  to  make  the  Dinner 
a  success.

Greenland  flapped  at  Last 

The  World's  Largest  Island 

A  complete  map  of  Greenland,  the 
world's  largest  island,  if  we  call  Australia 
a  continent,  is  published  for  the  first 
time  in  Petevmann' s  Mitteihmgen,  the 
great  German  geographical  magazine, 
from  surveys  made  during  two  years 
past  by  Dr.  Mylius-Erichsen,  who  lost 
his  life  when  returning  from  his  com- 
pleted work.  Says  a  correspondent  of  the 
New  York  Sun  : — 

neighbourhood  of  Bering  Strait.  With 
this  idea  in  view  he  wrote  the  instructions 
for  the  second  German  North  Polar 
Expedition  under  Captam  Koldewey,  who 
was  sent  out  to  complete  if  possible  the 
mapping  of  the  east  coast. 

"  He  succeeded  in  reaching  by  a 
sledge  journey  only  77°  north,  a  little 
beyond  Cape  Bismarck.  We  now  know 
that  more  than  1,000  miles  of  tortuous 
coast-line  stretches  between  his  highest 
north  and  the  northern  shores  of  the 


"  The  trend  of  the  north-east  coast  is 
very  different  from  what  geographers  had 
supposed.  It  had  been  marked  on  all 
previous  maps  as  probably  extending  from 
about  7  8°  north  latitude  in  a  general 
north-west  direction  to  the  Independence 
Bay  of  Peary.  In  fact,  it  extends  for 
about  300  miles  in  a  north-easterly 
direction  till  its  most  eastern  point 
nearly  touches  12°  west  longitude  from 

"  About  forty  years  ago  Dr.  A.  Peter- 
mann  spread  the  view  that  Greenland 
probably  extended  across  the  Pole  and 
down  the  other  side  of  the  earth  to  the 

"  Then,  in  1905,  the  Duke  of  Orleans 
on  the  steam-yacht  Belgica  pushed  over 
100  miles  to  the  north  of  Cape  Bismarck, 
but  fog  prevented  him  from  making  a 
satisfactory  survey  of  the  coast-line. 
Meanwhile,  Dr.  Mylius-Erichsen  formed 
the  plan  of  making  a  complete  survey  of 
the  unknown  coast  of  Greenland  from 
Cape  Bismarck  north  till  he  joined  his 
survey  with  that  of  Peary,  and  thus 
complete  the  map  of  the  island. 

"  He  started  on  the  steamer  Denmark 
from  Copenhagen  on  June  25th,  1906, 
picked  up  three  Greenlanders  and  a  lot 
of  Eskimo  dogs  that  had  been  sent  to  the 

Faroe  Islands  to  meet  him,  touched  at 
Iceland,  pushed  for  fourteen  days  through 
the  ice  of  the  Greenland  sea,  and  reached 
Koldewey  Island  on  August  13th. 

"  On  the  next  day  he  had  an  easy 
journey  in  the  ice-free  coastal  waters  to 
Cape  Bismarck,  and  hi  the  inlet  behind  it 
he  found  a  suitable  place  for  the  winter 
quarters  of  his  ship.  The  little  harbour 
was  named  Denmark  Haven.  In  the  late 
summer  he  sledged  supplies  northward  to 
make  provision-depots  for  the  long  jour- 
ney of  the  following  spring,  and  he  also 
surveyed  the  coasts  both  north  and  south 
of  his  winter  camp  as  long  as  daylight 

"  On  March  28th  last  year  the  great 
sledge  journey  was  begun.  Mylius- 
Erichsen,  Lieutenant  Hageu,  and  the 
Greenlander  Bronlund  were  to  survey 
every  mile  of  the  coast  until  their  explora- 
tions joined  those  of  Peary  at  Indepen- 
dence Bay.  lieutenant  Koch,  the  artist 
Bertelsen ,  and  the  Greenlander  Gabrielsen 
were  to  push  north  of  Peary  Channel  to 
complete  the  exploration  of  the  eastern 
edge  of  Peary  Land,  which  Peary  had 
explored  as  far  south  as  Wyckoff  Island. 

"  Two  detachments  went  along  for 
weeks  to  carry  food  for  the  survey 
parties.  As  it  left  the  ship  the  expedition 
numbered  ten  men,  ten  sledges,  and 
eighty-six  dogs." 

The  lives  of  the  explorer  and  of  two 
of  his  companions  were  really  sacrificed 
to  his  mistaken  notion  of  the  shape  of 
the  northern  coast  of  Greenland.  Instead 
of  being  practically  a  smooth  curve,  as  he 
thought,  it  presents  great  peninsulas  and 
inlets,  so  that  his  food-supply  gave  out 
before  he  could  find  his  way  back  to  his 
base.  His  body,  together  with  the  notes 
of  his  survey,  were  found  later  by  a 
search  party.  To  quote  further  : — 

' '  Hagen  died  on  November  1 5th  and 
Mylius-Erichsen  ten  days  later,  when 
only  a  few  miles  from  the  food  cache. 
Bronlund  reached  it  hi  the  moonlight,  and 
when  the  spring  search  party  this  year 
found  his  body  there  it  was  evident  that 
he  'had  lived  for  several  days  after  his 
arrival,  but  his  strength  was  too  far  gone 
for  recuperation. 

"  With  trembling  hand  he  filled 
several  pages  in  his  notebook  with  a 
description  of  their  wanderings  and 
sufferings  and  told  where  his  comrades 
had  died.  It  was  impossible  to  discover 
and  bury  their  bodies,  because  the  new- 
fallen  snow  was  very  deep.  The  last 
honours  were  paid  to  Bronlund,  and  he 
and  his  comrades  now  lie  on  the  great 
island  whose  mapping  they  completed. 

"  It  was  wonderfully  fortunate  that 
the  bottle  containing  the  survey  sheets 
was  found  slung  around  the  neck  of 
Bronlund.  Perhaps  the  great  result  of 
this  exploration  would  never  have  been 
known  if  it  were  not  for  this  fortunate 
circumstance.  It  is  thought  that  Mylius- 
Erichsen  probably  did  not  venture  to 
carry  his  diaries  and  collections  over  the 
inland  ice  with  him,  but  left  them  in 
some  safe  depository  at  Denmark  Fiord, 
where  they  may  ultimately  be  recovered."

Education  and  the  Principal 
Aim  of  Woman 

In  one  of  the  Philadelphia  public  schools 
is  a  girl  whose  forebears  held  that  the 
principal  aim  of  the  life  of  a  woman  is 
marriage.  This  little  girl  is  well  up  in 
most  studies,  except  geography.  The 
other  day  her  teacher  sent  to  her  mother 
to  see  that  the  girl  studied  her  lesson. 
The  next  day  showed  no  improvement, 
and  the  teacher  asked  her  whether  she 
gave  the  note. 

"  Yes,  ma'am,"  was  the  reply. 

"  And  did  your  mother  read  it  ?  " 

"  Yes,  ma'am." 

"  What  did  she  say  ?  " 

"  She  said  that  she  didn't  know 
geography  an'  she  got  married,  an'  my 
aunt  didn't  know  geography  an'  she  got 
married,  an'  you  know  geography  and 
you  haven't  got  married." — Newsbook. 

An  American  Publisher's 

The  publishing  department  of  Paul 
Elder  &  Company  will  be  returned  in 
February  from  New  York  to  the  home 
office  in  San  Francisco.  Promptly  after 
the  earthquake  of  April,  1906,  the  firm 
erected  an  attractive  building  in  San 
Francisco's  new  business  centre  on  Van 
Ness  Avenue,  in  which  they  continued 
their  local  and  retail  business,  but  found 
it  necessary  temporarily  to  remove  their 
publishing  interests.  The  rebuilding  of 
the  city,  already  so  far  advanced,  the 
rapid  resumption  of  normal  business 
conditions  and  especially  the  renewal  of 
adequate  facilities  for  printing  and  pub- 
lishing have  now  enabled  the  firm  again 
to  concentrate  all  departments  in  their 
San  1' ran cisco  quarters. 

After  January  20th,  1909,  temporary

"  Conquering  the  Arctic  Ice  " 

This  book  of  Arctic  exploration  by 
Captain  Ejnar  Mikkelsen  has  an  interest 
of  its  own,  in  so  far  as  the  author  started 
on  his  voyage  with  no  intention  of 
reaching  the  North  Pole.  Persistent 
rumours  had  existed  of  undiscovered 
land  lying  to  the  north  of  Alaska  and 
west  of  Bank's  Land,  and  the  stories  of 
Eskimo  natives  who  professed  to  have 
seen  this  new  country  derived  some 
support  from  the  theory  that  the  drift 
and  nature  of  the  pack-ice  in  these 
regions  could  only  be  explained  by 
assuming  the  existence  of  an  undiscovered 
island  or  continent.  Captain  Mikkelsen 
has  proved  that  no  undiscovered  land  lies 
in  the  region  of  his  expedition,  and  that 
the  possibility  of  any  further  discovery  in 
this  direction  is  practically  excluded. 
But  a  series  of  soundings  along  the  north 
coast  of  Alaska  have  also  enabled  him  to 
establish  the   important   fact   that  the 


Continental  Shelf  lies  close  to  that  coast 
and  does  not  indicate  any  connection 
with  land  further  north.  Plaxman  Island 
became  the  headquarters  of  the  expedi- 
tion and  the  starting-point  of  the  sledge 
journey  over  the  ice  during  the  winter 
months.  The  ship,  the  Duchess  of  Bedford, 
became  a  wreck  in  the  course  of  the 
whiter  and  was  abandoned  next  spring, 
the  crew  being  sent  home  by  a  passing 
whaler.  While  the  ice  was  slowly  wreck- 
ing his  ship,  Captain  Mikkelsen  and 
Mr.  Leffingwell  were  occupied  with  the 
preparation  and  execution  of  an  ice  trip 
which  will  certainly  rank  as  one  of  the 
most  daring  on  record :  during  those 
months  of  1907,  the  party  was  reported 
lost,  as  every  newspaper  reader  will 
remember.  After  surmounting  incredible 
difficulties.  Captain  Mikkelsen  returned  to 
find  his  crew  living  in  a  house  constructed 
from  the  fittings  of  the  Duchess  of  Bed- 
ford. He  returned  to  civilisation  along 
the  Alaskan  coast,  via  Nome  and  Yukon, 
a  distance  of  3,000  miles,  the  longest 
sledge  journey  ever  made  by  an  explorer. 

The  book  is  an  extraordinary  record 
of  wonderful  tenacity  and  perseverance 

in  face  of  difficulties  apparently  insur- 
mountable. Financial  troubles,  storms 
and  blizzards,  the  dangers  of  the  ice,  all 
were  alike  encountered  with  unvarying 
patience  and  determination.  A  feature  of 
the  book  is  the  remarkably  full  and 
accurate  description  of  Eskimo  life  and 
manners.  Captain  Mikkelsen  lived  in  the 
closest  intimacy  with  this  people,  and 
those  who  are  accustomed  to  regard  them 
as  savages  of  a  very  low  type  will  be 
agreeably  enlightened  by  a  perusal  of 
these  pages,  illustrated  with  a  large 
number  of  very  interesting  photographs 
and  other  illustrations. 

The  book  has  just  been  published  in 
most  attractive  form,  fully  illustrated,  by 
Mr  William  Heinemann,  without  whose 
assistance  the  expedition  would  not  have 
been  possible. 

Nature  Study  in  Schools 

In  the  London  County  Council  Schools 
of  Arts  and  Crafts  an  exhibition  was 
opened  on  January  8th  which  is  intended 
to  illustrate  the  subjects  under  discussion 
at  the  conference  of  London  teachers. 
By  far  the  most  interesting  exhibits  are 
those  which  relate  to  open-air  school 
work.  History  rambles  in  London  are  also 
illustrated.  Another  section  deals  with 
educational  excursions.  It  will  be  a 
surprise  to  many  people  to  learn  that 
parties  of  boys,  numbering  as  many  as 
fifty,  have  made  excursions  of  a  week's 
duration  to  places  so  far  away  as  the 
Welsh  border  and  the  Isle  of  Wight. 
These  boys  came  from  the  very  poorest 
elementary  schools.  It  is  due  to  the 
headmasters  of  the  schools,  working  in 
some  cases  in  conjunction  with  the 
Children's  Hobday  Fund,  that  the  neces- 
sary money  has  been  obtained  for  these 
excursions.  Hitherto  they  have  not  been 
officially  recognised,  and  have  only  taken 
place  in  the  Easter  holidays.  Now, 
however,  there  is  a  clause  in  the  code 
permitting  a  week's  absence  from  school 
for  the  purpose  of  such  excursions,  and  it 
is  hoped  this  will  give  a  fillip  to  the 

Bacon's  Excelsior  Maps 

Messrs.  G.  W.  Bacon  &  Co.,  Ltd.,  are 
now  issuing  a  new  series  of  their  well- 
known  Excelsior  Wall  Maps.  The  new 
series  is  coloured  geographically  instead 
of  politically.  The  heights  of  land  are 
shown  by  different  shades  of  green  and 
brown,  and  the  depths  of  water  by 
varying  shades  of  blue.  The  same  bold 
outlines  and  lettering  as  in  the  original 
series  are  retained  throughout. 

The   contours   have   been  prepared 
'  with  the  greatest  care  from  Governmental 
I  and  other  surveys,  and  these  maps  will 
certainly  rank  as  among  the  most  popular. 
1  useful  and  satisfactory  aids  for  carrying 
out  modern  ideas  of  teaching  geography. 

The  maps  now  ready  are  Europe,  Asia, 
Africa,  North  America,  Australia  and  the 
British  Isles.  The  size  is  about  5  feet  by 
4  feet. 

A  section  of  the  map  and  full  cata- 
logues of  other  teaching  aids  for  geo-

A.  E.  Dunnett,  F.  J.  Evans,  H.  Worrell, 
W.  Collins,  G.  0.  Thomas,  H.  B.  Moody, 
and  W.  L.  Jones.  There  is  no  doubt  that 
the  spirit  of  Dickens  has  entered  into 
every  member  of  the  firm,  and  the  few 
friends  who  were  present  seemed  also 
to  have  caught  the  infectious  geniality. 

After  the  usual  loyal  toasts,  Mr. 
Arthur  Waugh  proposed  the  toast  of  the 
evening — "  Prosperity  to  the  Firm  of 
Chapman  &  Hall."  He  said  that  there  j 
was  such  a  good  feeling  of  fellowship  in 
Henrietta  Street  that  the  newest  recruit 
was  always  made  at  home,  but  that  when 
he  compared  his  own  seven  years  of 
service  with  the  long  careers  of  many  of 
those  whom  he  saw  around  him  that 
evening  he  could  not  but  feel  humble. 
With  many  topical  and  personal  refer- 
ences Mr.  Waugh  then  recounted  the 
personnel  of  the  firm  since  the  year  1 87 1 , 
when  the  oldest  present  member  of  the 
staff  joined  the  office,  and  ended  by 
assuring  those  present  that  it  was  upon 
such  records  of  long  and  faithful  service 
that  the  prosperity  of  the  firm  had 
depended  in  the  past  and  would  assuredly 
depend  in  the  future.  There  were  said  to 
be  employers  of  labour  in  the  City  of 
London  to-day  who  boasted  that  they 
could  get  out  of  a  man  all  the  good  of 
which  he  was  capable  in  the  course  of  a 
couple  of  years,  and  that  then  the  man 
was  useless.  But  the  history  of  labour, 
like  the  record  of  Rehoboam  of  old,  went 
to  prove  that  one  incalculable  gift  which 
youth  could  never  bring  was  the  gift  of 
experience,  and  at  Henrietta  Street  they 
had  learnt,  while  taking  each  man's 
censure  and  reserving  their  judgment, 
to  rely  as  much  upon  the  wise  experience 
of  the  old  as  upon  the  eager  impulses  of 
youth.  Herein,  he  believed,  lay  the  secret 
of  the  firm's  continued  prosperity  and  of 
the  cheerful  faces  among  which  it  was  his 
privilege  to  work  from  day  to  day. 

There  were  only  two  other  toasts  on 
the  list — that  of  "  The  Chairman  "  and 
that  of  "  The  Guests."  Mr.  W.  B.  Aker- 
man, who,  although  not  by  any  means 
the  doyen  of  the  staff,  has  nevertheless 
represented  the  firm  as  country  traveller 
for  twenty-eight  years,  proposed  the 
former.  In  the  course  of  his  remarks  he 
alluded  to  the  long  list  of  notable  names 
in  literature  connected  with  the  firm 
since  its  formation,  including  such  names 
as  John  Forster,  George  Henry  Lewes, 
John  Morley  (now  Viscount  Morley), 
Mr.  George  Meredith,  Anthony  Trollope, 
and  Mr.  W.  L-  Courtney.  With  such  a 
glorious  past,  and  from  what  they  had 

heard  from  the  chairman  that  night,  he 
felt  that  the  outlook  in  the  future  with 
Mr.  Arthur  Waugh  at  the  helm  indicated 
that  the  traditions  of  the  great  house 
were  likely  to  be  carried  on  in  the  future. 
Mr.  B.  W.  Matz  proposed  "  The  Guests." 

During  the  evening  Mr.  Arthur  Waugh 
recited  a  poem  written  in  honour  of  the 
occasion,-  from  which  we  quote  the 
following  verses  : — 


'Tis  more  than  seventy  years  ago  that  there 

was  wont  to  stand 
A  humble  little  bookshop  at  186  the  Strand  : 
And  there  one  rain-swept  winter  night  a 

young  man  might  be  seen 
Enquiring  if  they'd  got  the  new  Old  Monthly 


The  man  behind  the  counter  very  quickly 

fetched  it  down. 
The  boy,  no  doubt,  had  thought  it  cheap  at 

three  times  half-a-crown  : 
For  as  he  turned  it,  eager  as  a  miser  in  the 


That  evening,  the  first  time  in  life,  he  saw 

himself  in  print  ! 
He  tucked  it  'neath  his  jacket,  and  strode 

out  into  the  sleet, 
And  his  heart  was  beating  louder  than  the 

traffic  in  the  street. 
A  simple,  common  incident  !     Yet  one  to 

touch  us  all, 
For  the  lad  who  bought  wag  Dickens,  and 

the  man  who  sold  was  Hall. 


Two  years  went  by,  and  once  again  that 

casual  couple  met, 
On  a  night  that  no  one  present  here  is  likely 

to  forget. 

The  tables  now  were  turned  :  it  was  the 
bookshop's  turn  to  call — 

And  the  man  who  sold  was  Dickens,  and  the 
man  who  bought  was  Hall  ! 

Long  time  they  sat  and  chatted  over  Sey- 
mour's sporting  scheme, 

Till  Mr.  Pickwick  rose  to  life,  like  Ilion  from 
a  dream  ; 

Till  Mr.  Pickwick,  wreathed  in  smiles,  awoke 

the  world  to  laughter, 
And  Dickens  and  his  publishers  were  one  for 

ever  after. 

Mr.  Frank  Speaight,  the  famous 
Dickens  reciter,  who  was  one  of  the 
guests  of  the  evening,  entertained  the 
company  with  three  recitals,  the  last  of 
which,  his  own  version  of  "  Casabianca," 
caused  such  fits  of  laughter  as  to  make 
one  feel  a  little  anxious  about  the  sides  of 
his  audience. 

During  the  rest  of  the  evening  songs 
were  given  by  Messrs.  H.  T.  Worrell, 
W.  B.  Francis,  H.  B.  Moody,  A.  E. 
Dunnett,  A.  Dykes  Spicer,  F.  J.  Evans, 
E.  F.  Gibbons,  Roland  Truslove,  W.  L. 
Jones  and  B.  W.  Matz,  and  a  right  good 
festive  occasion  was  brought  to  a  close 
with  "  Auld  Dang  Syne." 

The  following  "  howlers  "  by  school- 
boys are  given  in  the  new  number  of 

The  University  Correspondent  : — 

To  kill  a  butterfly  you  pinch  its  borax. 

The  bloodvessels  are  the  veins, 
arteries,  and  artilleries. 

A  ruminating  animal  is  one  that  chews 
its  cubs.

Great  Work  of  the  School 

How  little  the  world  knows  of  those  who 
are  doing  its  most  arduous  and  often  its 
most  important  work  !  In  education,  for 
example.  The  headmasters  of  the  public 
schools  are  honoured  and  well  known. 
The  assistant-masters,  too,  have  their 
place  in  the  social  world.  But  what  of 
the  men  who  are  charged  with  the  far 
more  difficult  and  equally  important 
task  of  educating  the  masses  ?  Why  is 
their  work  not  better  known  and  more 
generously  recognised  ? 

At  the  King's  Hall,  Holborn.  on 
January  7th,  commenced  a  conference  of 
London  teachers,  mostly  drawn  from 
elementary  schools.  Here  one  could  see 
what  manner  of  men  and  women  they  are 
who  are  helping  to  shape  the  future  of 
England  by  moulding  the  minds  of  the 
generation  which  will  follow  us.  It  was 
impossible  not  to  be  struck  by  their 
enthusiasm,  their  interest  in  their  pro- 
fession, their  sanity,  their  desire  to  learn. 

There  are  thousands  of  men  doing 
well  to-day  who  will  tell  you  that  they 
owe  a  very  great  deal  to  their  teachers  in 
elementary  schools.  Not  only  for  what 
they  were  taught,  but  for  the  influences 
brought  to  bear  upon  them  in  their 
impressionable  years,  for  the  stimulus 
communicated  to  them  by  active  minds, 
for  the  healthy  spirit  of  sportsmanship 
and  honour  cultivated  both  in  work  hours 
and  at  play. 


As  for  the  influence  which  a  woman 
teacher  can  and  often  does  exercise  over 
her  girls,  it  is  incalculable.  Only  those 
Who  know  intimately  the  conditions  of 
life  in  the  under-world  of  cities  can  even 
faintly  realise  the  value  of  the  example 
of  a  sensible,  kind-hearted,  pure-minded 
girl  among  the  children  of  the  slums.  It 
opens  out  to  them  an  ideal  of  life  they 
have  never  dreamed  of.  It  keeps  them 
straight  and  decent.  It  shows  them  which 
is  the  "  right  turning,"  and  helps  them  to 
take  it  when  the  moment  for  choosing 


There  was  a  discussion  on  "  Open-air 
Education."  which  includes  both  nature- 
study  and  schools  out  of  doors  -  for 
defective  or  delicate  children.  Instead  of 
denouncing  it  as  a  fad  all  the  most 
intelligent  headmasters  and  teachers  have 
taken  it  up  with  interest  and  enthusiasm. 

They  told  how  they  took  children  out 
to  study  animal  and  plant  life,  to  find 
fossils  and  shells.  They  told  of  long, 
wonderful  days  in  the  country.  They 
explained  how  "  school  journeys  "  could 
be  undertaken,  a  whole  batch  of  children 
being  carried  off  to  some  country  place 
for  a  week  or  a  fortnight  in  term  time  to 
have  their  interests  stimulated  and  their 
minds  enlarged. 


Miss  Beer  gave  a  particularly  interest- 
ing account  of  a  garden  school  for  children 
who  were  not  strong  enough  to  attend  an 
ordinary  centre.  They  were  taught  the 
progress  of  civilisation  by  playing  at  cave- 
dwellers,  then  being  Druids  ;  afterwards 

choosing  a  chief  for  convenience  and 
better  protection.  Geography  was  im- 
parted by  making  rivers  and  lakes  and 
continents  and  seas  on  the  garden  path  ; 
arithmetic  by  pulling  rhubarb  and  pick- 
ing gooseberries  ;  and  domestic  economy 
by  taking  charge  of  the  caretaker's  baby 
and  learning  that  pork,  pease-pudding 
and  pickles  were  not  a  suitable  diet  for 
infants  of  tender  years. 

No  wonder  Dr.  Rose,  assistant  educa- 
tional adviser  to  the  London  County 
Council,  would  like  to  see  all  children 
educated  partly  on  these  lines. — The

Hints  for  Copying  and 
Postal  Clerks 

WHEN  folding  letters  with  enclosures  it 
is  an  excellent  plan  to  pin  all  together, 
or  so  to  fold  them  that  the  recipient 
cannot  take  one  out  without  taking  all. 
Everybody  has  had  experience  of  the 
necessity  for  searching  through  the  waste 
j  paper  basket,  or  the  file  of  old  envelopes, 
I  for  the  missing  paper  money  in  some 
i  form  or  other,  or  other  enclosure  which 
has  been  overlooked,  because  it  was  "  left 
in  the  envelope." 

Cheques,  drafts,  postal  and  money 
orders  ought  to  be  folded  so  that  it  is 
impossible  to  cut  through  them  in 
opening  the  mail  with  a  knife  or  envelope 
opener.  Some  twenty  years  ago  or  so 
an  American  brought  out  a  patent 
clipper  for  opening  envelopes.  You  put 
the  envelope  under  a  sort  of  guillotine, 
gave  a  handle  on  top  a  sharp  blow  with 
your  fist,  and  the  whole  of  the  top  edge  of 
the  envelope  was  cut  off.  It  was  a  very 
ingenious  attempt  to  make  money  by 
saving  time,  but  in  practice  you  found 
that  you  cut  a  strip  out  of  so  many 
cheques,  drafts,  &c.  that  the  money 
made  was  lost  in  sticking  it  together 

Cheaper  Books  for  the  Blind 

What  is  to  be  known  as  the  New  York 
system  of  "  point  "  reading  for  the  blind 
has  been  perfected  by  William  B.  Wait, 
Principal  of  the  New  York  Institute  for 
the  Blind,  and  B.  B.  Huntoon,  the 
Superintendent  of  the  American  Printing 
House  for  the  Blind,  at  Louisville.  By 
cheapening  the  cost  of  printing  such 
literature  the  system  is  expected  to 
permit  many  blind  persons  to  purchase 
:  reading  matter.  The  Sunday-school 
lessons  in  the  new  "  point  "  system  for 
the  blind  will  be  sent  to  press  in  a  week, 
and  it  is  expected  that  the  entire  system 
of  religious  instruction  for  the  eighty 
thousand  blind  persons  in  the  United 
vStates  will  undergo  marked  changes. 
Hitherto,  because  of  the  raised  surfaces, 
only  one  side  of  the  paper  could  be  used, 
making  the  cost  of  a  book  or  paper  for 
a  blind  reader  a  large  item.  The  New 
York  system  is  so  arranged  that  both 
sides  of  the  paper  can  be  used.  The 
embossing  on  one  side  of  the  page  is 
between  the  lines  of  the  embossing  on  the 
other.  The  cost  of  production  will  be 
reduced  by  fully  40  per  cent. — New  York

Highly  Trained 
Young  Women  Fretting 
Their  Hearts  Out 

THERE  were  several  sectional  meetings  in 
the  afternoon  of  January  Sth  at  the 
Technological  Institute  in  connection 
With  the  Conference  of  Teachers  at 
Manchester.  Dealing  with  the  question 
of  teachers  (Sir  Henry  F.  Hibbert  pre- 
siding), Miss  S.  J.  Hale  (principal  of  the 
Lodge  Hill  Training  College,  Liverpool) 
said  that  more  teachers  were  n6w  being 
trained  than  could  find  employment,  and 
thus  money,  time,  and  brain  were  being 
spent  uuprofitably.  Mr.  Ernest  Gray 
urged  that  local  authorities  should  decline 
to  make  further  provision  for  the  training 
of  teachers  until  the  policy  of  the  Board 
of  Education  was  clearly  defined.  There 
were,  he  said,  "  highly  trained  young 
women  fretting  their  hearts  out  at  home, 
a  burden  on  their  parents,  literally 
hundreds  of  pounds  having  been  spent  On 
their  training.  The  educational  needs  of 
the  schools  cried  aloud  for  more  certificated 
teachers,  and  the  Board  of  Education 
stood  idly  by.  an  imperfectly  informed 
President  telling  the  House  of  Commons  : 
'  I  am  not  aware  that  they  are  experienc- 
ing unusual  difficulties  in  obtaining 
appointments.  In  fact,  such  evidence  as 
the  Board  possesses  indicates  that  the 
demand  for  teachers  is  still  in  excess  of 
the  supply.'  The  intelligence  department 
of  the  Board  of  Education  was  as  defective 
as  that  of  the  Army  at  the  outbreak  of 
the  South  African  War."

The  advantage  which  this  Method  has  over  all  others  is  its  combination  of  theory  and  practice,  i.e.  a  clear  scientific  exposition 
of  the  Grammar,  combined  with  practical  conversational  exercises.  By  strictly  adhering  to  this  Method  the  great  difficulty  of 
enabling  the  pupil  to  speak  and  write  foreign  languages  has  been  successfully  solved  for  the  first  time.     The  New  Editions  have

Education  in  China 

UNTH,  to-day  we  have  heard  little  of  the 
scheme  for  founding  a  University  on 
Western  lines  in  China  since  Lord  William 
Cecil  expounded  his  views  on  the  subject 
four  or  five  months  ago.  The  plan,  which 
had  active  support  at  Oxford  and  Cam- 
bridge, was  to  organise  an  educational 
centre  or  University  independent  of  any 
missionary  body,  yet  in  sympathy  with 
their  work.  It  was  felt  on  the  one  hand 
that  there  were  many  who,  while  un- 
willing to  subscribe  to  existing  missionary 
societies,  would  not  be  adverse  to  helping 
forward  Western  education  in  China,  and 
on  the  other  that  many  missionary 
bodies  would  be  glad  to  be  relieved  of  the 
expense  of  providing  purely  secular 
education  and  the  costly  apparatus  that 
modern  scientific  study  requires.  The 
matter  is  one  of  great  difficulty,  as  the 
promoters  of  the  scheme  recognised.  It  is 
only  recently  that  the  real  meaning  of 
education  has  been  understood  in  China  ; 
the  yoimg  men  there  learned  to  read  and 
write  simply  because  the  State  examina- 
tions demanded  it,  and  the  idea  of 
educating  a  man  morally,  physically  and 
intellectually  to  make  him  a  good  citizen 
was  never  entertained.  That  the  China- 
man now  frequently  sends  his  sons  to 
school  mainly  for  the  sake  of  education  is 
one  of  the  most  noticeable  features  in 
modern  China,  and  one  that  makes  this 
period  of  great  danger.  Western  ideas 
have  taken  a  firm  root  in  China,  and  it 
has  become  incumbent  upon  the  West  to 
provide  the  leaders  of  China  with  adequate 
mental  equipment  that,  in  Lord  William 
Cecil's  words,  the  country's  thought  may 
be  reconstructed  in  harmony  with  modern 
knowledge.  We  believe  that  the  joint 
British  and  American  scheme  will  be 
warmly  received,  for  the  number  of 
young  Chinese  who  are  being  sent  to  the 
American  universities  shows  that  univer- 
sity education  is  keenly  sought  for. —

The  Church  Militant 

IT  is  quite  refreshing  to  see  a  reviewed 
author  taking  things  in  the  following 
style — not  lying  down  by  any  means. 
The  Times  reviewer  seems  to  have  quite 
stroked  the  Rev.  P.  H.  Ditchfield  the 
wrong  way,  and  in  a  reply,  published  we 
are  glad  to  see  in  the  same  paper,  he 
says  : — 

"  I  cannot  allow  your  reviewer  to  ride 
off  on  the  high  horse  saying,  '  It  is  as 
useless  to  argue  with  those  who  impute 
the  dissolution  of  monasteries  to  Henry's 
greed  as  with  those  who  impute  the 
French  Revolution  to  Mirabeau's  ambi- 
tion or  Robespierre's  vanity.'  I  have  no 
intention  of  arguing  the  matter  with  him, 
or  of  discussing  the  causes  which  led  to 
the  destruction  of  monasteries  in  Eng- 
land. It  is  well  known  that  there  were 
contributory  causes  besides  the  greed  of 
Henry  ;  but  most  authorities  are  agreed 
that  the  latter  was  the  one  supreme 
overwhelming  cause  without  which  the 
dissolution  would  have  been  postponed 
for  many  years.  But  that  is  not  the 
question.  Your  reviewer  insults  me  with 
impertinent  observations  because  I  have 
expressed  the  same  views  which  are  held 
by    Abbot    Gasquet,    Canon  Overton, 

Lingard,  Fuller,  and  many  other  histor- 
ians. Do  the  conclusions  of  these  writers 
savour  rather  of  a  childish  history  than 
'  of  a  rational  history  for  grown-up 
people  '  ?  As  I  read  history  I  believe  that 
the  conclusions  of  these  and  other  eminent 
historians  are  right ;  if  they  are  proved 
to  be  wrong,  I  err  hi  good  company,  and 
ought  not  to  be  exposed  to  the  virulent 
abuse  of  this  extraordinary  reviewer." 

The  Genius  of  Shakespeare 
and  Dickens 

In  a  long  and  interesting  review  in  The 
Times  of  "  The  vShakespeare  Problem 
Restated,"  by  G.  G.  Greenwood,  M.P. 
(Lane),  and  "  William  Shakespeare  : 
Player,  Playmaker  and  Poet,"  a  reply  to 

;  Mr.  George  Greenwood,  M.P.,  by  H.  C. 
Beeching,  D.Litt.,  Canon  of  Westminster 

I  (Smith,  Elder),  the  reviewer  says  : — 

"  '  The  Shakespeare  Problem  Re- 
stated '  is  not,  we  submit,  a  title  pre- 
eminently suggestive  of  explosive  quality 
in  a  book.  The  work  in  question  has,  at 
any  rate,  been  reposing  upon  our  shelves 
for  a  considerable  time  without  exhibiting 
signs  of  latent  dynamic  force  :  and  it  was 
not  until  we  caught  sight  of  Canon 
Beeching  handling  the  book  in  question 
with  what  seemed  an  exaggerated  amount 
of  precaution,  and  throwing  it  into  a 
water  tank  before  proceeding  to  a 
careful  examination  of  its  contents,  that 
our  attention  was  forcibly  directed  to 
the  subject.  Having  assured  ourselves 
now  that  the  pedestal  of  the  national 
poet  is  in  no  immediate  danger  of  levita- 
tion,  it  may  not  perhaps  be  unprofitable 
to  try  to  discover  what  the  bearing  and 
application  of  the  Shakespeare  Problem 
may  conceivably  be. 

"  Great  as  the  advance  of  compara- 
tive psychology  has  been  hi  quite  recent 
years,  the  problem  of  supreme  genius  is 
hardly  one  of  those  to  which  we  can 
expect  an  even  proximate  solution  in  the 
near  future.  At  what  stages  or  under 
what  conditions  of  national  growth 
supremely  great  men  are  most  likely  to 
be  produced  is,  to  say  the  least,  pro- 
blematical. Among  all  the  attempts  that 
have  been  made  to  explain  insurgent 
greatness,  Shakespeare's  own — namely, 
that  it  is  probably  due  to  some  latent 
strain  of  blue  blood  or  aristocratic 
lineage — has  proved  the  least  adequate, 
the  least  satisfying.  It  may  be  a  reproach 
to  the  science  of  eugenics,  but  it  is  the 
manifest  truth  to  say  that  a  great  poet 
is  far  less  likely  to  prove  the  son  of  a 
Lord  Keeper  than  the  son  of  the  smallest 
yeoman.  The  large  majority  of  our 
greatest  writers  have,  in  fact,  emerged 
from  the  ranks  of  the  lower  middle  class, 
to  which  there  is  no  doubt  that  Shake- 
speare himself  belonged.  That  many  or 
most  of  them  have  emerged  from  milieus 
the  most  unlikely  is  matter  of  common 
knowledge  to  everyone  except  the  man 
who  happens  to  be  holding  a  brief  on 
the  other  side.  The  case  of  one  of  the 
greatest  names  after  Shakespeare  also 
points  to  the  same  conclusion.  When 
asked  by  one  of  those  wiseacres  who  are 
convinced  that  in  order  to  write  good 
English  a  man  must  be  taught  to  write 
bad  Latin,  where  his  son  was  edn  ted, 
Mr.    John   Dickens   replied   with  con- 

siderable aplomb  that  his  son — er — well, 
his  son — er — might  be  almost  said,  in  a 
sense,  to  have  educated  himself.  The 
street,  the  warehouse,  Mr.  Creakle,  an 
attorney's  office,  the  reporters'  gallery, 
and  post-chaise — such  was  the  education 
that  equipped  a  young  man  of  twenty- 
four  to  preside  at  the  banquet  of  litera- 
ture at  an  unprecedented  age,  to  make 
the  best  speeches  in  London,  to  go  into 
the  best  society,  to  set  the  table  hi  a 
roar,  to  lead  every  company  in  which  he 
mixed,  to  travel,  acquire  French  and 
Italian  with  ease,  and  write  the  most 
animated  letters  known  to  the  modern 

"  At  every  turn  we  encounter  this 
same  phenomenon  of  the  alchemy  of 
genius  turning  sand  into  gold.  That 
vShakespeare's  should  be  regarded  as  a 
singular  case,  transcending  the  common 
law  of  genius,  is  due,  we  believe,  in  large 
measure,  to  the  extravagance  of  vShake- 
speare's eulogists."

The  Mountains  of  the  Moon 

When  Lhasa  had  been  visited,  Ruwenzori 
remained — save  for  the  gorges  of  the 
Brahmaputra — the  only  great  geogra- 
phical mystery  unveiled.  Happily  the 
unveiling  has  not  killed  the  romance,  for 
the  truth  is  stranger  than  any  forecast. 
If  the  Mountains  of  the  Moon  are  lower 
than  we  had  believed,  they  are  far  more 
wonderful.  Here  you  have  a  range  almost 
on  the  Equator,  rising  not  from  an 
upland,  like  Kilimanjaro,  but  from  the 
"  Albertine  Depression,"  which  is  600  or 
700  feet  below  the  average  level  of 
Uganda  ;  a  range  of  which  the  highest 
peaks  are  a  thousand  feet  liigher  than 
Mont  Blanc,  which  is  draped  most  days 
of  the  year  in  mist,  and  accessible  from 
the  plains  only  by  deep-cut  glens  choked 
with  strange  trees  and  flowers.  The 
altitude  would  in  any  case  give  every 
stage  of  climate  from  torrid  to  arctic, 
but  the  position  on  the  Line  adds  some- 
thing exotic  even  to  familiar  mountain 
sights,  draping  a  glacier  moraine  with  a 
tangle  of  monstrous  growths,  and  swell- 
ing the  homely  Alpine  flora  into  portents. 
The  freakish  spirit  in  Nature  has  been  let 
loose,  and  she  has  set  snowfields  and  rock 
aretes  in  the  heart  of  a  giant  hothouse. —

Lord  Rosebery,  in  a  letter  to  the  Editor  of  "Public  Opinion," 
dated  November  28,  1908,  from  Dalmeny  House,  Edinburgh,  says: —

find  it  one  of  the  principal  means  of  continuing  my  education  that  the 
world  provides."

English   and  American 
Libraries  Compared 

In  reply  to  certain  disparaging  comments 
on  the  management  of  European  libraries 
which  have  appeared  in  the  American 
Press,  the  Library  World  for  January, 
1909,  has  published  a  pointed  rejoinder, 
in  which  it  is  shown  that  the  accom- 
plishment of  the  American  Municipal 
Libraries  is  very  feeble  compared  with 
the  work  of  European  Libraries,  while 
the  cost  is  exceedingly  extravagant. 
The  British  ratepayer,  who  occasionally 
growls  at  the  id.  rate  levied  for  the 
Public  Library,  will  be  comforted  to 
know  that  in  three  large  American 
Libraries  it  requires  an  expenditure  of 
£138,000  and  a  staff  of  624  to  circulate 
in  one  year  3,775,000  volumes.  Three 
British  Libraries,  ranking  hi  size  with  the 
American  ones,  spend  £42,000,  with  a 
staff  of  268,  in  circulating  4.383.000 
volumes.  Every  book  circulated  in 
these  American  Libraries  costs  nd.,  as 
against  2^d.  in  British  Libraries.  Again, 
the  expenditure  per  head  of  the  popula- 
tion is  2s.  2d.  in  Ann  m  an  towns,  and 
Only  8d.  in  the  English  ones.  Other 
extraordinary  examples  are  cited  to  show 
that  there  is  no  ground  for  the  American 
claims  'to  any  kind  of  superiority  in 
Library  work,  unless  it  be  extravagant 
expenditure  and  enormous  staffs. 

One  leading  American  Library,  in  the 
Central  building,  employs  90  persons  to 
issue  287,165  volumes  per  annum,  at  a 
cost  estimated  to  be  £6,000.  The  Cen- 
tral Library  of  an  English  town  employs 
9  persons  to  circulate  322. Soo  volumes  at 
a  cost  of  £405.   It  will  thus  be  seen  that 

in  proportion  to  expenditure  the  work 
of  British  Libraries  is  infinitely  superior, 
more  economical,  and  better  appre- 
ciated by  the  public  than  anything  the 
American  Libraries  can  show. 

The  Library  World  editorial  ends  with 
the  following  humorous  and  pointed 
anecdote : — 

"  A  farmer  of  the  old-fashioned 
school  was  being  chaffed  about  the 
poverty-stricken  look  of  one  of  his 
crops,  as  compared  with  a  fine  fat  crop 
on  the  field  of  a  neighbouring  farmer. 
'  Oh  !  yes,'  said  the  farmer,  '  it's  easy 
enough  to  get  plenty  of  juice  from  a 
gravestone,  if  you  butter  it  thick 
enough.'  " 

The  American  Library  system  is  a 
buttered  gravestone  ;  but  it  reverses  the 
moral  of  the  story  by  showing  only  an 
indifferent  crop  in  spite  of  the  profuse 

All  this  brag  about  tin-  greatness  and 
superiority  of  American  Libraries  puts 
<  )iu  irresistibly  in  mind  of  the  story  of  the 
over-manured  field. 

did.  Miss  Dickens  said  that  when  she 
went  to  gatherings  of  that  sort  she  found 
that  everybody  knew  so  much  more 
about  her  grandfather's  books  and  about 
her  grandfather  himself  than  she  did, 
that  the  best  thing  she  could  do  was  to 
hold  her  tongue.  There  was  one  thing 
that  always  struck  her  when  she  saw 
kind  feeling  exhibited,  and  that  was  how 
unjust  was  the  reproach  which  was  so 
often  brought  against  what  was  called  the 
public — the  reproach  of  fickleness.  She 
thought  that  when  it  was  said  the  public 
was  fickle,  it  was  really  meant  that  the 
public  was  very  generous  and  trusting. 
The  public  continually  thought  that  it 
had  found  the  real  thing  and  expressed 
itself  to  that  effect  ;  then  by-and-by  it 
found  that  it  had  not,  and  it  looked  for 
something  else.  That  was  not  fickleness, 
but  simply  bringing  somebody  or  some- 
thing to  the  proof  and  finding  it  wanting. 
But  when  the  much  maligned  public 
did  find  tire  real  thing,  it  stuck  to  it ; 
there  was  no  doubt  about  that. — From

Hope  for  Parents 

By  Frank  Eijas 

The  following  circular  has  just  come  to 
hand  : — 

For  parents  alarmed  at  the  prospect 
of  their  sons  abandoning  their  training 
for  remunerative  professions  in  order  to 
adopt  the  uncertain  life  of  literature,  there 
is  now  a  word  of  hope.  To  such  parents 
at  one  time  only  one  course  seemed  open, 
namely,  to  make  the  best  of  things  : 
possibly  to  send  the  young  man  to  some 
school  of  journalism. 

To-day,  however,  all  that  is  changed. 
Parents  need  not  submit.  Their  children 
will  do  that,  and  will  do  it  quite  willingly. 
Further,  the  parent  need  not  enroll  his  son 
as  a  member  of  any  school.  He  will 
merely  send  him  to  the 

Institute  for  the  Discouragement  of 
Incipient  Genius 

The  Proprietors  of  this  Institution 
realise  that  what  is  wanted  to-day  is  not 
a  school  to  teach  people  to  write,  but  a 
school  to  teach  them  not  to  write. 
Parents  will  doubtless  ask  how  this  end  is 
attained.  The  explanation  is  simple. 
The  one  certain  way  to  encourage  a  young 
writer  to  continue  is  for  editors  to  accept 
his  work.  But  editors  do  not  always 
consider  the  parents'  point  of  view. 
They  incline  to  use  work  without  en- 
quiring of  the  author  whether  his  mother 
is  aware  of  his  absence.  The  Proprietors 
of  the  Institute  saw  therefore,  that  if  the 
editor  was  to  be  prevented  from  accepting 
the  author's  work,  the  latter  must  be 
made  to  do  work  so  bad  as  to  be  im- 
possible of  acceptance.  The  Institute 
is  the  result. 

We  guarantee  that  no  young  man, 
however  naturally  talented,  and  however 
successful  with  his  first  contributions,  will 
ever,  after  the  first  week  with  us,  succeed 
in  getting  a  single  line  of  his  work 
published  in  any  reputable  paper  in  the 
kingdom.  We  care  not  if  he  is  a  Carlyle 
or  a  Browning.  Det  him  come  into  our 
hands,  and 

His  Career  is  Over. 

Every  editor  will  mark  him  down  for 
ever,  and  even  if  later  in  life  he  tries  to 
write  again,  he  will  be  too  notorious  to  be 

Our  course  includes — Instruction  in 
Bad  Grammar,  False  Quantities,  Mis- 
spelling, Unsound  Syntax,  Blank  verse 
Prose,  together  with  careful  training  in 
Dulness,  Vapidity,  Discursiveness,  the 
use  of  the  elench,  &c. 

Instruction  in  the  Use  of  the  Split 
Infinite  is  Charged  for  Extra 

Weekly  classes  are  held  too,  for  in- 
struction in  the  employment  of  ' '  Different 
to,"  &c. 

That  our  course  is  successful  need 
hardly  be  said.  During  last  week  alone 
our  pupils  received  931  rejection  forms, 
some  of  them  from 

The  Most  Unimportant  Papers  . 

Three  pupils  were  even  refused  the 
use  of  the  advertisement  columns  of  a 
village  weekly.  Yet  one  of  the  three 
when  he  came  to  us,  showed  the  highest 

It  may  be  said,  "  But  will  pupils 
rebel  ?  " 

That  is  for  the  parent  to  decide. 
But  if  once  the  latter  exerts  enough 
authority  to  get  his  son  within  our  walls, 
we  undertake  that  he  will  go  through  our 
course.  Of  how  we  compel  his  obedience 
we  need  not  say  much,  except  to  remark 
that  in  extreme  cases,  we  read  him 
specimens  of  the  work  done  by  some  of  our 
graduates  on  leaving.  In  order  to  get  us 
to  stop  he  naturally  undertakes  to  write 
our  exercise,  which  is  only  slightly  worse 
than  the  day  before.  But  each  step  he 
thus  takes  is  further  from  literature  and 
nearer  the  desire  of  his  parent,  and  rarely, 
when  the  course  is  completed,  has  the 
pupil  further  desire  to  write.  When 
offered  a  position  in  trade  or  profession 
he  gladly  accepts.  But  read  one  of 
to-day's  testimonials  : — 

Dear  Sir, — My  son  wanted  to  be  a 
poet.  I  had  desired  him  to  join  me  in 
jam  making.  So  successful  was  your 
treatment,  however,  that  not  only  has  he 
been  manufacturing  jam  for  the  past  year, 
but  he  has  added  a  sausage  plant  to  our 
premises. — Yours  faithfully. 

The  British  Empire 
(and  Japan) 

By  W.  Bisiker,  F.R.G.S. 

The  Geographical  Publishing  Company, 
of  Chichester  Rents,  Chancery  Dane,  send 
us  "The  British  Empire  (and  Japan)," 
an  excellent  modern  Atlas,  having  213 
maps  and  272  illustrations,  numerous 
tables  and  diagrams,  with  text  concerning 
commercial  products,  statistics,  histories, 
features,  resources,  commerce,  industries, 
scenery,  and  the  physical  and  economic 
conditions  of  the  world.  An  admirable 
work  suitable  for  the  youngest  and  even 
the  most  advanced  of  scholars,  and  one 
in  which  the  conventional  lines  of  the 
atlases  that  have  been  in  vogue  for  the 
last  two  or  three  generations  have  not 
been  followed.  An  attempt  has  been 
made — very  successfully,  we  think — to 
make  the  maps  interesting  in  themselves, 
and  to  bring  out  clearly  the  chief  points 
and  features.  It  is  certainly  a  wonderful 
production  for  21s.,  in  many  respects  the 
best  of  its  kind. 

Whitaker's  Almanack 

No  one  who  is  interested  in  education  or 
commerce  or  politics  or  anything  else 
can  well  afford  to  be  without  that  won- 
derful work,  Whitaker's  Almanack,  which 
improves  with  the  years.  It  is  a  perfect 
"  Who's  Who  "  in  a  great  many  walks  of 
life — e.g.,  you  want  to  know  who  repre- 
sents Japan  here  or  who  represents  us  hi 
Japan,  or  any  other  country  civilised 
enough  to  have  a  representative,  Whita- 
ker  tells  you  in  '■'  half  a  jiffey,"  whatever 
portion  of  time  that  may  be.  The  light 
of  the  beautiful  Index  to  Whitaker's  is 
hid  under  a  bushel  of  small  type  :  how- 
ever, magnifying  glasses  are  very  cheap. 

Whitaker's  Peerage,  Baronetage, 
Knightage,  and  Companionage  for  1909 

is  also  ready  to  answer  almost  any 
possible  inquiries,  and  is,  like  the  Al- 
manack, a  beautiful  bit  of  printing. 

SchooUBooks  and  Politics 

[The  following  extracts  arc  from  a  very 
interesting  letter  in  last  week's 
Spectator. — Ed.  P.Q.] 

Sir, — One  of  the  wisest  teacher.-,,  William 
Cory  of  Eton,  recommended  a  man  who 
was  to  follow  him  in  his  work  to  write  a 
letter  if  he  felt  aggrieved,  and  to  burn  it 
next  morning.  The  first  stage  in  this  two- 
fold process  relieved  the  feelings,  the 
second  prevented  them  from  harming  the 
writer  or  any  one  else.  The  schoolmaster 
usually  is  inarticulate. — the  ordinary 
schoolmaster  I  mean :  for  unmuzzled 
Head-Masters  have  a  yearly  fling.  We 
ordinary  men,  however,  have  our  feelings 
and  opinions,  and  many  of  us  could,  and 
we  would,  contribute  a  good  deal  of 
valuable  information  on  the  question  of 
education.  As  I  have  just  finished  a 
period  of  work  that  has  lasted  for  fourteen 
full  weeks  with  never  an  evening  off  or  a 
week-end,  I  feel  free  to  kick  my  heels,  and 
I  should  like  in  so  doing  to  kick 
"  Parent's  "  as  well  (see  Spectator,  Decem- 
ber 26th  1908). 

Into  his  attack  upon  grammar  and 
its  terminology  I  need  not  follow  him. 
But  the  sting  of  "  Parent's  "  letter  is 
in  its  latter  part — the  introduction  of 
politics.  And  yet  only  a  few  days  ago  a 
pupil  of  mine  volunteered  the  remark  to 
me  that  it  was  a  pity  that  politics  were 
not  taught  !  My  excellent  "  Parent," 
some  boys  come  from  Tariff  Reform 
homes,  some  from  Free  Trade  homes.  At 
home  some  hear  Home  Rule,  others 
Unionism.  Some  are  little  Englanders, 
others  Imperialists  :  and  so  on.  No  book 
was  ever  written  that  would  suit  every 
boy  {and  his  parents)  in  a  division.  The 
important  thing  is  that  there  should  be 
some  politics  hi  every  book,  and  the  more 
so  in  these  days  of  pleasure  on  the  eve  of 
catastrophe.  The  master  who  deals  with 
"  dead  languages,"  that  embody  living 
ideas,  cannot  help  mentioning  that  sea 
power  is  the  same  whether  it  defends  the 
food*  of  Athens,  Rome,  or  England  :  that 
the  nation  that  will  not  fight  will  lose  its 
independence,  whether  it  be  Egypt  or 
Britain.  As  long  as  the  boy  will  think, 
and,  still  better,  discuss  his  doubts  or 
convictions  at  home,  the  teacher  feels 
that  he  has  helped  to  make  a  citizen, 
and  that  is  not  always  the  product  of 
public  school  and  home. 

Well,  there,  Sir,  is  my  letter  ;  and 
now  you  may  burn  it. — I  am.  Sir,  &c,

Kipling's  School  Slang 
Philologically  Considered 

A  German  or  Swedish  philologist  from 
Upsala  with  the  name  of  Fredrik  Schmidt 
has  lately  written  "  a  study  in  English 
sehool-hfe  and  schoolboy  slang,  as  repre- 
sented in  Kipling's  '  Stalky  and  Co.'  "  ; 
and  his  results  are  certainly  astonish- 
ing. The  German  philologist  pursues 
with  "impenetrable  seriousness"  the 
subtleties  of  English  schoolboy  humour 
through  thirty-five  closely  printed  pages 
of  the  Englische  Studien.  He  begins,  says 
a  writer  in  The  Academy,  whose  summary 
we  quote,  "  with  an  elaborate  scheme  of 
contents,  and  after  a  short  introduction 
plunges  into  the  '  phonology,'  the  '  inflec- 
tions,' and  the  '  word-formations  '  of 

One  chapter  deals  with  voeabulary 
and  style,  in  which,  it  is  said,  "Mr. 
Schmidt  surpasses  himself  in  his  treat- 
ment of  transferred  appellations  of  human 
beings."  Some  specimens  follow  : — 

"  Terms  of  human  beings  which  have 
developed  a  generalised  sense  from  a 
primary  personal  one. 

"  Dutchman  denotes  at  first  nationa- 
lity and  then  means  '  a  contemptible, 
stupid  person,'  a  sense  due  to  the  rivalry 
between  the  English  and  the  Dutch — e.g., 
in  the  seventeenth  century  (cf.  Reinius, 
p.  162).  Thus  'I'm  a  Dutchman '  =  ' a 
worthless  fellow,'  is  a  usual  way  of 
emphasising  an  assertion.  To  increase  the 
effect  of  humour  Beetle  says  :  '  If  he 
don't  think  the  house  is  putrid  with  it 
(money-lending),  I'm  several  Dutchmen, 
that's  all  '  (in). 

"  A  similar  effect  is  produced  by  the 
expression  :  '  If  King  can  make  anything 
out  of  this,  I'm  a  blue-eyed  squatteroo  ' 

"  The  name  of  an  author  becomes  the 
name  of  the  book  written  by  him.  Thus  : 
'You'd  better  carry  my  Jorrocks  '  (5). 
Jorrock  was  a  great  zoological  scholar. 

"  The  whole  article  would  bear  quota- 
tion ;  it  is  full  of  this  kind  of  portentous 
humour  staggering  under  the  guise  of 
gravity.  Could  anything  be  richer  than 
this  :  '  An  abstract  substantive  becomes 
a  concrete  substantive  with  an  appellative 
sense.  Corridor-caution  =  one  who  excites 
alarm  or  astonishment  in  the  corridor  '  ? 
The  value  of  these  philological  notes  to 
German  scholars  must  be  immense. 

"  The  next  section  is  concerned  with 
school-work  and  organisation,  discipline, 
dress,  pastimes,  sport,  and  games.  Notes 
on  examinations  and  discipline  include  a 
reference  to  Mr.  Clutton  Brock's  '  Eton  at 
the  Present  Day  '  for  the  procedure  at  a 
'  flogging  '  ;  and  the  philologist  declares 
that  '  bag  is  a  word  for  wide  trousers,  and 
is  then  used  as  a  verb,  meaning  "  drop 
stealthily  in  one's  trousers,"  "steal," 
"  take."  '  Among  pastimes,  sport,  and 
games,  '  besides  the  usual  "  spree," 
"  frolic,"  '  there  are  lark,  bend,  jamboree, 
gloat,  football,  cricket,  golf  (a  cleek  is 
'  a  club  bent  at  right  angles  in  order  to 
hit  the  golf-ball '),  fives,  and  marbles. 
The  terms  for  'inebriated,'  'be  afraid.' 
and  '  run  away '  receive  a  section  to 
themselves,  followed  by  '  terms  expressing 
various  feelings  and  acts  of  enmity  and 
friendship,'  which  cover  such  phrases  and 
words   as    '  get   beans,'    '  had   him  on 

toast,'  '  jaw,'  '  hector,'  '  jape,'  '  chivy,' 
'  scrag  '  ;  but  Mr.  Schmidt  can  find  only 
one  phrase  of  friendship,  '  to  freeze  on  to.' 

"  Some  difficulty  was  encountered 
over  the  word  '  frabjous  '  ;  the  commen- 
tator, not  finding  it  in  any  dictionary, 
suggested  that  it  '  may  be  a  comical 
corruption  of  fabulous,'  but  added  in  a 
footnote,  '  As  I  have  been  told  later  on, 
the  word  frabjous  is  to  be  found  in  some 
book  written  by  Lewis  Carroll.'  It  is  to 
be  hoped  that  Mr.  Schmidt  may  soon 
turn  his  attention  to  the  philological 
curiosities  of  '  'Twas  brillig/  

' '  A  hobbledehoy  is  '  a  youth  approach- 
ing manhood  '  ;  a  piffler  is  '  a  man  with 
a  moral  end  in  view,  but  nothing  to  back 
it,  but  a  habit  of  talking  sentimental 
rubbish'  (see  'Cent.  Diet.'),  ex.,  'Don't 
jaw,  you  fat  piffler.'  And  Mr.  Sclnnidt 
perpetuates  the  interpretation  of  '  damn  ' 
as  the  '  Indian  dam,  an  ancient  copper 
com.'  He  finds  no  difficulty  in  tracing 
much  of  Mr.  Kipling's  phraseology  to  a 
Biblical  source. 

"  Mr.  Schmidt  has  detected  a  '  foreign 
influence  '  in  much  of  the  schoolboy  talk, 
such  as  in  the  use  of  'cave,'  '  twiggez- 
vous '  ;  and  he  notes  that  a  French 
influence  can  be  '  traced  '  in  such  phrases 
as  '  I'm  not  smokin'  aujourd'-hui,  parce 
que  je  jolly  well  pense  that  we'll  be 
suivi.'  " 

"The  Cleansing  of  a  City" 


Messrs.  Greeting  and  Co.,  Ltd.,  have 
just  published,  at  the  price  of  is.  net,  a 
work  entitled  "  The  Cleansing  of  a 
City."  We  should  be  happy  to  subscribe 
five  guineas  to  a  fund  for  defraying  the 
cost  of  sending  a  copy  to  every  Member 
of  both  Houses  of  Parliament  and  to 
every  school  teacher.  There  surely  can 
be  no  general  knowledge  by  Parliament 
of  many  of  the  facts  or  alleged  facts  de- 
scribed in  this  work — e.g..  that  since  the 
German  Emperor  cleansed  Berlin  and  the 
Municipal  authorities  swept  out  Brussels, 
London  contains  more  foreign  bullies 
"dependent  for  existence"  on  [  the 
"  ownership  and  exploitation  of  women  " 
than  any  city  "  since  the  fall  of  the 
Roman  Empire."  It  is  said  that  these 
foreign  panderers  have  formed  a  syndicate 
for  importing  foreign  women  and  decoying 
and  ruining  our  women  and  girls,  and  for 
fighting  our  police  hi  the  Courts.  There 
are  thousands  of  these  foreign  devils  and 
blackmailers  now  at  work  in  London. 
Mr.  Cxeorge  R.  Sims  deserves  the  thanks 
of  all  for  the  courage  with  which  he  has 
exposed  this  most  dangerous  stream  of 
foreign  vice,  diverted  into  England,  and 
not  confined  to  London,  because  it  was 
too  foul  even  for  Berlin  and  Brussels. 
There  is  plenty  of  native  vice,  and 
evervbodv  must'agree  that  this  syndicate 
of  foreign  bullies  and  every  member  of 
it  ought  to  be  expelled.  England  ought 
to  be  made  too  hot  for  them.  It  is  too 
absurd  and  incongruous  for  our  British 
Government  to  shake  its  head  and 
solemnly  lecture  the  Belgian  Government 
on  the  atrocities  and  immoralities  011  the 
Congo  when  it  winks  at  these  atrocities 
and'  hmnoralities  on  the  Thames.  Re- 
cently in  two  parishes  of  Soho  there  were

Publishers'  Circular 


over  a  thousand  of  these  foreign  bullies, 
and  the  infection  is  spreading  to  the 
suburbs  and  to  other  towns. 

Surely  it  is  for  the  legislative  assembly, 
as  Bishop  Welldon  points  out,  to  deal 
with  this  foreign  cancer. 

Other  matters  dealt  with  in  this  ugly 
little  volume  are  : — "  Unclean  Fiction," 
by  Dr.  Barry,  "  Noxious  Literature,"  by 
Dr.  Horton,  "  Cheap  and  Nasty  Journals," 
by  the  Editor  of  the  book,  "  The  Moral 
Training  of  Youth,"  &c.  For  these  the 
hope  is  in  education  rather  than  legisla- 
tion, and  it  is  for  that  reason  we  wish  to 
see  this  book  hi  the  hands  of  every  school 
teacher  in  the  country. 

Little  Niggers  and  AngIo= 
Saxon  Kings 

Speaking  at  a  meeting  of  the  Historical 
Association,  held  at  University  College, 
Gower  Street,  on  January  8th,  Mr. 
Sidney  Webb,  London  County  Council, 
said  that  history  was  the  greatest  element 
in  the  teaching  of  what  they  called 
culture,  and  no  man  or  woman  could 
arrive  at  a  state  of  culture  without  a 
knowledge  of  history  in  its  widest  sense. 
History  freed  men  from  the  bondage  of 
the  present  and  the  domination  of  self. 

Dealing  with  the  way  in  which  history 
was  taught,  Mr.  Webb  said  that  when 
years  ago  he  was  a  clerk  at  the  Colonial 
Office,  he  foimd  that  little  black  boys 
sitting  on  a  form  in  Sierra  Leone  were 
beginning  their  study  of  history  by  learn- 
ing the  names  of  the  Anglo-Saxon  kings. 
(Laughter.)  He  tried  to  alter  this,  and 
one  of  his  ideas  was  to  teach  them  the 
time  of  day  by  the  clock.  That,  however, 
was  knocked  on  the  head,  for  lie  was 
informed  that  there  was  only  one  clock 
in  Sierra  Leone,  and  that  was  at  Govern- 
ment House.  (Laughter.)  He  then 
thought  of  writing  a  history  of  the 
world  from  the  point  of  view  of  Sierra 
Leone.  (Laughter.)  This  was  where  the 
teaching  of  history  fell  short.  It  did  not 
treat  the  subject  from  the  point  of  view 
of  those  who  were  being  taught,    *  |  -\ 


Personally,  he  had  learnt  most  of  his 
history  through  examinations,  and  he 
thought  the  examiners  were  more  wise 
when  they  asked  the  student  his  views 
on  feudalism  than  when  they  asked  him 
to  name  the  date  of  certain  events,  for 
dates  alone  were  not  history.  Of  all  the 
condemnations  which  would  be  passed 
upon  Oxford  and  Cambridge,  the  most 
severe  would  be  in  consequence  of  their 
exclusion  of  the  history  of  the  Nineteenth 
Century  from  their  historical  course.

The  Edinburgh  School  Atlas 

Messrs.  W.  &  A.  K.  Johnston  (Loudon 
and  Edinburgh)  have  just  published  an 
entirely  new  atlas  for  schools.  The 
plates  from  winch  this  atlas  is  printed 
are  entirely  new,  the  black  and  hills 
having  been  specially  engraved  on  separ- 
ate copper  plates  by  the  very  latest 
photo-mechanical  process  in  Messrs. 
Johnston's  studio  at  Edina  works.  The 
atlas  is  specially  adapted  to  the  teaching 
requirements  of  the  present  day,  showing 
as  it  does  the  physical  features  by  varying 
shades  of  brown,  political  boundaries  by 
hard  red  lines,  and  the  depths  of  the  sea 
by  different  shades  of  blue.  In  order  not 
to  overcrowd  the  maps,  only  the  names 
of  the  most  important  places  have  been 
inserted,  but  the  list  of  names  (6,000),  of 
which  the  latitude  and  longitude  are 
given,  is  very  complete.  The  location  of 
places  by  this  means  is  a  very  useful

Musical  Copyright  and 
Perforated  Rolls 

The  important  decision  made  at  Bow- 
Street  a  few  months  ago,  in  which  it  was 
held  that  perforated  roll  was  not  a  copy 
of  a  musical  work,  and  is  not,  therefore, 
an  infringement  of  copyright,  has,  as  we 
anticipated,  come  before  a  higher  Court 
on  appeal  in  Mabe  v.  Connor.  The  case 
came  before  the  Lord  Chief  Justice,  Mr. 
justice  Bighani  and  Mr.  Justice  Walton 
sitting  as  a  Divisional  Court,  and  Mr. 
Danckwerts,  K.C..  appeared  on  behalf  of 
the  appellants.  The  Lord  Chief  Justice, 
in  giving  judgment,  said  the  Court  was 
bound  by  the  decision  of  the  Court  of 
Appeal  in  Boosey  v.  White,  and  that  the 
Magistrate's  decision  must  be  upheld. 
Mr.  Justice  Bigham  expressed  himself  as 
not  satisfied  that  the  rolls  did  not  con- 
stitute a  piracy,  but  the  decision  of  the 
Court  of  Appeal  precluded  him  from  so 
deciding.  The  appeal  was,  therefore, 
dismissed,  but  leave  for  further  appeal 
was  granted. 

The  S.  and  S.  Practical 
Object  Drawing  Handbooks 

Messrs.  Schofiexd  &  Sims,  Ltd.,  of 
Huddersfield,  are  the  publishers  of  a 
series  of  Handbooks  for  Teachers  on 
Practical  Object  Drawing.  Mr.  R.  E. 
Green  is  the  author.  The  series  com- 
prises a  six  years'  graduated  course,  and 
one  of  the  chief  features  is  the  introduc- 
tion of  natural  objects  in  place  of  the 
artificial  objects  so  often  used.  How 
much  more  interested  children  would  be 
if,  instead  of  piling  up  a  cone,  a  cube,  a 
triangle,  and  a  few  other  shapes,  the 
teacher  were  to  give  them  some  such 
article  as  an  inkstand,  pocket-book,  cup 
and  saucer,  jam-pot,  flower-pot,  &c.  ? 
This  is  a  sensible  and  most  useful  series. 

Another  useful  manual  for  teachers 
is  Book  HI.  of  Physical  Exercise,  for 
children  from  12 — 14  years  of  age.  It 
is  illustrated  with  good  photographs,  and 
with  Books  I.  and  II.,  should  be  in  great 
demand.  All  interested  should  send  for  a 
copy  of  Messrs.  Schofield  &  Sims'  general

dated  January— March,  1909. 

Regarding  the 
New  Edition  of  the 
250   Recipe  Cookery  Book 

Good  cookery  is  the  foundation  of  good 
health  and  good  temper,  and  we  welcome 
the  second  revised  and  improved  edition 
of  "  The  250  Recipe  Cookery  Book,"  just 
published  at  is.  by  Messrs.  Evans  Bros., 
Byron  House,  Fleet  Street.  The  title  is 
"  The  250  Recipe  Cookery  Book,"  and  in 
addition  to  these  recipes,  each  of  which 
represents  an  appetising,  inexpensive 
dish,  there  are  valuable  hints  on  methods 
of  roasting,  boiling,  pastry-making,  &c. 
We  wish  a  copy  were  in  use  in  eyery 
kitchen — no  book  would  add  so  much  to 
the  gaiety  of  our  nation — and  we  want  it 
when  our  skies  are  so  leaden,  like  under- 
done pastry. 

Booksellers  Sell  Nearly 
30,000  Copies  of

Booksellers  may  care  to  know  that

popular  edition  of  Lord  Morley's  "  Life 
of  Gladstone  "  have  been  sold  through 
"  the  trade  "  since  it  was  published  at  the 
end  of  October.  These  figures — which, 
of  course,  do  not  include  direct  individual 
sales — show  how  effectively  booksellers 
have  handled  the  edition,  and  how  well 
worth  their  while  it  was  to  do  so.  They 
also  show  what  may  be  done  during  the

as  the  "  Gladstone,"  in  a  five-shilling 

An  Educational  Work  on 

Mr.  G.  M.  Doolittle,  author  of  "  Scientific 
Queen  -  Rearing,"  has  just  published 
another  work,  which  will  doubtless  be  very 
useful  to  bee-keepers  in  this  country  as 
well  as  hi  his  own  country,  the  United 
States.  The  new  brochure  is  entitled 
"  A  Year's  Work  in  an  Out-Apiary  " 
(61  pp.,  price  50  cents),  and  is  published 
by  the  A.  I.  Root  Company,  of  Medina, 
U.S.A..  publishers  of  the  semi-monthly, 
Gleanings  in  Bee  Culture.  This  illustrated 
work  is  devoted  to  practical  bee-keeping 
in  out-apiaries  for  beginners  as  well  as 
experts,  and  shows  how  it  is  possible  to 
get  an  average  of  114  pounds  of  honey 
per  colony  even  in  a  poor  season.  We 
know  nothing  about  bee-keeping,  but  it 
is  one  of  the  oldest  of  human  industries 
and  a  fascinating  one  also.  Mr.  Doolittle 
is  an  enthusiast,  and  as  a  natural  con- 
sequence his  work  is  done  from  the  heart 
as  well  as  the  head  ;  it  fairly  hums  with 
good  suggestions  all  through. 

It  opens  in  this  pleasant  fashion  : 

"  The  sun  rose  bright  and  clear  on 
the  morning  of  April  14th.  1905,  the 
morning  of  my  sixtieth  birthday  ;  and 
as  old  Sol  peered  over  the  hill-top  hi 
all  his  golden  splendour,  kissing  the 
swelling  buds  and  cheering  all  ani- 
mated nature  with  the  intuition  that 
'  Sprhig  has  come,'  I  proposed  to  Mr. 
Clark,  my  partner,  that  we  go  over  to 
the  out-apiary,  five  miles  distant,  and 
set  the  bees  out  of  the  cellar,  the  bees 
in  the  home  apiary  having  been  set 
out  three  days  previously." 

As  in  Medina,  Ohio,  the  roads  are 
under  deep  mud  or  snow  six  mouths  out 
of  the  twelve,  Mr.  Doolittle  cannot  use 
his  auto  all  the  time  for  getting  about,  so 
he  uses  it  as  a  motor  for  the  grindstone, 
churn,  feed-cutter,  buzz-saw,  &c. 

Religious  Tract  Society 
Cricket  Club 

Fifth  Annual  dinner 

Thanks  to  the  generosity  of  Mr.  James 
Bowden  (R.T.S.  Lay  Secretary  and  Pre- 
sident of  the  Cricket  Club)  04  members  of 
the  staff  spent  a  most  enjoyable  evening 
at  Anderton's  Hotel,  Fleet  Street,  on 
Wednesday  evening,  January  6th.  The 

Cricket  Club  had  a  record  season  in  1908 
— viz.,  12  wins  and  2  losses.  Mr.  Wm. 
Gribble  won  the  Batting  Prize,  and  Mr. 
R.  Gray  the  Bowling  Prize.  The  well- 
served  dinner  was  followed  by  the  usual 
speeches.  After  dinner  oratory  is  often 
a  thing  to  be  endured  and  not  enjoyed, 
but  on  tliis  as  on  former  occasions  of  the 
Club's  dinners,  the  speakers  were  in  great 
form.  After  the  toast  of  "  The  King  and 
Queen  "  had  been  loyally  received,  Mr 

G.  T.  Betts,  hi  his  usual  able  manner, 
proposed  "  The  Health  of  the  R.T.S. 
Counnittee."  The  Rev.  A.  R.  Buckland, 
M.A.,  recently  returned  from  Cliina,  pro- 
posed "  The  Health  of  the  Staff,"  and  the 
Rev.  R.  C.  Earle,  M.A.,  responded  hi  a 
very  pleasant  and  humorous  maimer. 
"  The  R.T.S. C.C.,"  the  toast  of  the 
evening,  was  proposed  by  the  Editor  of 
The  Boy's  Own  Paper,  Mr.  G.  A.  Hutchi- 
son, hi  a  very  genial  maimer,  Mr.  Wm. 
Gribble  responding.'  "  The  Health  of  the 
President  "  wras  proposed  by  the  Rev.  C. 

H.  Irwin,  M.A.,  and  Mr.  E.  Henderson 
Smith  thanked  the  visitors  for  their 
attendance.  The  visitors  were  the 
artistes,  who  supplied  a  very  fine  even- 
ing's music.  The  part  singing  of  the 
Occasional  Glcemen  was  most  tastefully 
rendered.  Mr.  Frederick  Addison's  songs 
and  encores  were  admirably  sung.  The 
same  criticism  may  be  extended  also  to 
the  efforts  of  Mr.  Stewart  Gardner.  Mr. 
Wilfred  Seton,  and  Mr.  William  Gribble. 
The  singing  of  "  Auld  Lang  Syne  " 
brought  a  most  delightful  evening  to 
an  end. 

Education  on  the  Nile 

"So  you  are  just  back  from  a  circular 
tour  of  the  Mediterranean,  including 
Egypt  and  the  Nile.   Well,  well  '.  " 

The  speaker  was  George  Ade.  Shaking 
the  hand  of  the  brown  young  farmer,  he 
went  on  : — 

"  I  know  the  sort  of  conversation  you 
heard  over  there — in  Egypt,  say.  Listen 
and  I'll  tear  off  a  yard  or  two.  It  ran  like 
this  : 

"  '  Isn't  it  lovely  ?  Cleopatra  lived 
here,  and  Moses,  and  Pharaoh.  It  makes 
your  head  swim,  doesn't  it  ?  ' 

"  '  I  guess  it's  tlie  bad  air.  It  hurts 
my  head,  too.  Is  that  the  Nile  ?  ' 

"  '  Look  at  the  crocodile  basking  hi 
j  the  sun.' 

"  '  Is  he  basking  ?  Oh,  Maude,  dear, 
by  the  way,  is  your  new  basque  to  have 
the  fashionable  long  sleeves  ?  ' 

"  '  Gee,  there's  the  Sphinx  !  ' 

"  '  And  that  must  be  the  desert.  But 
I  I  don't  see  any  caravans.' 

"  '  No.  How  provoking  !  ' 

"  '  Isn't  it  nice  to  travel  on  a  railroad 
j  where  they  don't  have  any  soot  ?  ' 

"  '  Yes.  and  do  yoq  notice  the  balmy, 
spicy  smell  ?  ' 

"  '  Yes.  indeed.  Just  like  cloves, 
isn't  it  ?  What  can  it  be  ?  I'll  ask  the 
brakeman.   Brakeman  I  ' 

"  '  Yes,  madam  ?  ' 

"  '  Where  does  that  spicy  smell  come 
from  ?  ' 

"  '  From  the  engine,  ma'am.  We  don't 
j  use  nothing  but  mummies  for  fuel  011  this

"America  at  College"* 

This  is  an  interesting  book  and  meets  a 
distinct  need.  It  is  too  common  to  find 
Englishmen  otherwise  well  informed  who 
know  nothing  whatever  of  American 
Universities  beyond  the  bare  names  of 
two  or  three.  This  ignorance  is  due  not 
to  indifference,  but  to  the  lack  of  any 
accessible  information.  Mr.  Risk  supplies 
that  information  at  first  hand.  He  gives 
us,  as  the  result  of  a  recent  tour,  chapters 
on  each  of  the  great  Universities,  on  a 
typical  small  college,  and  on  four  leading 
women's  colleges.  The  book  is  brightly 
written  and  will  be  read  with  advantage 
by  graduates  of  British  Universities,  who 
will  find  much  to  admire  and  something 
to  envy  in  American  University  develop-

Glasgow  Book  Trade  Notes 

By  "  Mungo  " 

A  GOOD  part  of  the  business  done  on  the 
week  following  Christmas  Day,  and,  in 
Scotland,  also  that  following  New  Year's 
Day,  is  made  up  of  exchanging  volumes 

1  that  have  been  given  hi  duplicate,  or 
that  have  not  suited  the  literary  tastes 
of  the  recipients.  This  latter  reason 
brings  forward  the  old  question  of  whose 
taste  is  consulted  in  buying  a  gift  book. 

i  and,  for  the  purpose  in  hand,  this  specially 
applies  to  juvenile  literature. 

Judging  from  some  of  the  volumes 
that  find  their  way  back  to  the  bookshop 
some  of  our  young  friends  must  have- 
been  grievously  disappointed  with  Santa 
Claus'  visit ;  but  it  is  a  difficult  problem 

I  to  solve. 

It  is  becoming  more  customary  for 
children  to  be  allowed  to  choose  their 
own  presents  from  the  shelves,  and  the 
delight  they  have  in  doing  this  no  doubt 
makes  up  for  what  is  lost  in  anticipation 
of  Christmas  morning  ;  but  parents  and 

!  aunts  and  uncles  who  prefer  to  follow 

!  the  other  method  often  fall  back  on 
books  they  found  delight  in  hi  their 

j  "  golden  age,"  and  this  habit  explains 
in  some  measure  how  some  titles  always 

!  appear  in  the  lists.  And  without  decrying 

j  these  particular  books,  it  is  quite  legiti- 
mate to  suppose  that  they  might  not  be 
so  suitable  for  the  child  as  some  of  the 
newer  ones  that  are  passed  over  ;  at 
least,  the  newer  books  are  often  more 
attractively  produced  than  the  old  ones, 
and  this  counts  for  a  good  deal  with 

This,  of  course,  does  not  apply  to  the 
classics  of  the  children's  bookshelf,  and 

I  "  Robinson  Crusoe,"  "  Swiss  Family," 
and  "  Treasure  Island  "  will  always  hold 
their  place  in  the  hearts  of  boys  and  girls  ; 

j  and  the  girl  of  to-day  very  often  shows  a 
decided  preference  for  boys'  books,  and 
would  much  rather  have  a  Henty  or  a 
Ballantyne  than  anything  written  by 
one  of  their  own  sex. 

The  animal  story  and  books  of  a 
mechanical  nature  are  becoming  more 

j  and  more  popular.  Thompson  Seton  and 
W.  J.  Long  have  already  made  their 
name  as  writers  of  animal  stories,  and  as 
the  chief  end  of  a  tale  is  to  give  delight 
the  recent  discussion  as  to  the  veracity  of 
our  authors  need  not  trouble  us.  A.  J. 
Dawson's  splendid  dog  story,  "  Finn  the 

I  Wolfhound,"  was  a  notable  addition  to 
this  season's  hst  and  proved  itself  a 

Captain  Brereton  and  Herbert  Strang 
go  far  to  satisfy  the  Glasgow  boy's  tliirst 
for  something  new  in  adventure,  and 
amongst  the  more  recent  writers  of 
girls'  books,  Christina   Gowans  Whyte 

i  holds  a  good  place.     Amy  Le  Feuvre. 

!  Mrs.  Vaizey,  L.  T.  Meade  and  Louisa 
Alcott  are  always  popular. 

The  larger  illustrated  editions  of 
"  Alice  in  Wonderland  "  and  "  A  Child's 
Garden  of  Verses  "  have  been  much  in 
demand  ;  but  Tenniel's  "  Alice  "  holds 
its  own  against  all-comers.     The  older 

!  Annuals  have  shown  a  falling  off  this 
season,  competition  with  newer  books 
with  more  coloured  illustration  telling 
against  them,  much  as  the  rag  book  is 
telling  on  the  paper  toy  book.

From  children  to  schoolmaster  is  but 
a  step,  and  some  weeks  ago,  when  con- 
gratulating a  teacher  on  the  approach  of 
tlie  Christmas  vacation,  I  remarked  that 
at  t  generous  holiday  would  be  much 
appreciated  by  booksellers.  His  reply 
was  to  the  effect  that  he  needed  a  rest 
more  than  the  bookseller  did,  as  his 
work  was  not  manual  labour.  It  seems 
that  pedagogues,  while  sure  of  their 
own,  are  not  agreed  as  to  the  bookseller's 
social  standing,  for  some  days  later  I  was 
told  that  the  daughter  of  a  bookseller, 
who  is  also  a  picture  framer,  had  been 
admitted  to  a  private  academy  on  the 
strength  of  the  bookselling  side  of  her 
father's  business,  the  mistress  looking 
upon  bookselling  as  a  profession  but 
upon  picture  framing  as  a  trade.  I  am 
left  wonderhig  whether  I  am  a  profes- 
sional man  or  a  labourer. 

Mr.  Mackenzie  Bell's  Poems 

Now  Used  in  schools 

Mr.  Mackenzie  Bell  has  composed  a 
long  preface,  with  some  touches  of  auto- 
biography, for  the  definitive  book  of  his 
verse  entitled  "  Poems,"  to  be  published 
at  once  from  4,  .Southampton  Row, 
London,  W.C.,  price  2s.  6d.  The  volume 
will  be  divided  into  sections,  entitled, 
respectively,  "  Poems  of  Nature," 
"  Poems  of  Consolation  and  Religion," 
"  Poems  and  Sonnets  concerning 
Shakespeare,"  "  Pictures  of  Travel," 
"  Poems  Founded  on  History,"  "  Mis- 
cellaneous Sonnets,"  "  Poems  of 
L,ove."  "  Lyrical  and  Other  Poems." 
"  Humorous  Poems,"  and  "  Poems  for 
School  Recitations,  Standards  I.  and  II.," 
the  latter  necessitated  by  the  fact  that 
his  work  is  now  used  as  an  "  unseen  " 
reading  book  in  schools.  In  the  essay 
above  mentioned,  the  author  says  : 

"  Early  Wordsworth  moved  me  in 
some  sort  ;  but  it  was  not  the  poet  of 
the  great  '  Ode  to  Immortality,'  nor 
the  consummate  sonneteer  ;  nor  the 
writer  of  the  more  exquisite  Lyrical 
Ballads  of  whom  I  was  cognisant ;  it 
was  the  Wordsworth  of  his  "  pedes- 
trian poems."  Surely  no  other  exalted 
poet  of  the  world  ever  gave  forth  so 
much  below  liis  proper  level.  About 
the  same  time,  as  the  result  of  hearing 
Matthew  Arnold  speak  one  evening  in 
Liverpool,  I  read  some  of  his  poetry, 
and  it  took  hold  of  me.  But,  here 
again,  I  liked  him  for  the  wrong 

Mr.  Mackenzie  Bell  then  goes  on  to 
explain  briefly  how  he  sought  to  remedy 
his  defects,  and  how  great  was  the 
influence  of  his  friend,  Mr.  Theodore 
Watts-Dun  ton,  the  writer  of  "  Ahvyn," 
to  whom  the  volume  is  dedicated.

[We  do  not  hold  ourselves  responsible  for  the 
opinions  expressed  by  our  Correspondents .] 


Dear  Sir, — Your  issue  of  the  19th  ult. 
contains  aspersions  on  the  international 
language,  Esperanto,  which  (as  an  Espe- 
rantist)  I  trust  you  will  give  me  an  oppor- 
tunity to  refute.  Your  correspondent, 
who  sends  you  a  paragraph  of  Esperanto 
selected  for  abuse  because  of  the  r  umber 
of  times  the  letter  "  j  "  occurs  in  it, 
omits  to  inform  your  readers  that  this 
consonant  is  pronounced  in  Esperanto 
not  as  the  English  "  j  "  but  as  the  English 
"  y."  When  this  is  understood,  the  con- 
tention that  Esperanto  sounds  ugly  be- 
cause it  contains  many  "  j's  "  falls  to  the 
ground.  In  point  of  fact,  those  who  have 
I  heard  good  Esperanto  speakers  inva- 
riably say  that  the  language  sounds  like 
Italian — confessedly  the  most  beautiful  of 
the  national  languages.  The  question  as 
to  whether  "  j  "  is  a  nice  letter  to  look  at 
is  purely  one  of  taste.  In  most  editions 
of  Latin  books  it  is  foimd  convenient  to 
use  it,  the  letter  being  then  pronounced 
by  modern  Latinists  as  in  Esperanto — 
e.g.  (Latin),  jam  =  jam  (Esperanto).  The 
origin  of  the  English  prejudice  against 
the  letter  "  j  "  is.  no  doubt,  the  fact  that 
it  denotes  in  the  English  alphabet  a  com- 
pound consonantal  sound.  Esperanto, 
however,  is  not  constructed  solely  for 
English  ideas,  being  truly  international  : 
and  the  Esperanto  value  of  the  symbol 
"  j  "  is  the  one  which  over  a  hundred 
millions  of  people,  including  Germans, 
Poles,  Dutch,  Russians.  Bohemians,  Scan- 
dinavians and  Italians,  attach  to  it.  In 
Spanish  it  has  a  somewhat  similar  sound, 
and  French  and  English,  which  differ 
among  themselves  in  the  sound  they  give 
to  it,  are  the  only  widely -spoken  lan- 
guages to  which  it  appears  strange. 
Apart  from  this,  the  defaming  of  a  lan- 
guage by  castigating  a  selected  para- 
graph constructed  "  ad  hoc  "  is  a  puerile 
expedient,  which  could  be  employed  with 
equal  injustice  to  prove  by  citation  of 
such  sentences  as  ' '  Peter  picked  a  peck  of 
pepper,"  that  English  is  afflicted  with  a 
superabundance  of  initial  "  p's."  The 
great  matter  wherein  so  many  would-be 
improvers  of  Esperanto  have  deceived 
themselves  is  that  the  language,  though 
it  has  been — for  European  consumption — 
presented  as  if  it  were  a  flexional  lan- 
guage, is  really  an  agglutinative  language 
like  Turkish  and  many  languages  of  Asia, 
this  being,  of  course,  the  secret  of  the 
success  of  Esperanto  in  the  East,  the 
Japanese  having  an  excellent  Esperanto 
magazine,  and  an  Esperanto  grammar, 
&c."  in  Arabic,  having  now  appeared. 
Esperanto  consists,  therefore,  entirely 
of  roots,  which  are  put  together  without 
internal  inflexion,  as  required  by  the 
sense.  If,  therefore  "  o "  signifies  a 
noun  and  "  j  "  gives  the  idea  of  plurality; 
the  combined  notion  of  a  noun  in  the 
plural  is  expressed  by  "oxj"  =  "oj." 
There  is  a  very  essential  difference  be- 
tween this  system  and  a  system  under 
which  "  o  "  is  changed  to  "  i  "  hi  the 
plural,  for  we  must  either  regard  this 
latter  as  an  inflexion  or  make  two 
separate  definitions  of  substantive  ter-

niinations,  where  Esperanto  has  one  only. 
This  is  but  one  instance  in  which  the 
alleged  simplification  of  points  in  Espe- 
ranto turns  out  on  inspection  to  be  a 
complication.  Furthermore,  every  effort 
has  been  made  in  Esperanto  to  keep  the 
number  of  roots  in  common  use  down  to 
the  lowest  possible  number.  It  is  not 
till  one  has  practised  it  that  one  realises 
what  a  tremendous  amount  of  meaning 
can  be  expressed  by  the  excellent  selection 
of  fundamental  roots  which  we  have  in 
Esperanto,  and  because  Esperanto,  like 
English,  German  or  Greek,  makes  com- 
pound words  from  its  own  roots  if  pos- 
sible, many  international  words  are  really 
rendered  superfluous  to  Esperanto.  This 
moderation  and  economy  of  material  is 
greatly  to  the  advantage  of  those  users 
of  Esperanto,  often  poor  and  dwelling  in 
remote  places,  who  cannot  afford  large 
and  costly  books.  This  fundamental 
vocabulary  thus  forms  the  staple  of  the 
Esperanto  language  just  as  the  thousand 
or  two  of  Saxon  words  hi  common  speech 
do  in  English,  while  among  them  comes 
and  go  as  as  the  topics  of  the  occasion 
demand  a  "  floating  population  "  of  inter- 
national words,  which,  if  they  survive, 
are  ultimately  accepted  into  the  complete 
dictionaries  in  the  form  which  experience 
has  shown  to  be  preferable,  laktuko  being, 
for  instance,  the  accepted  form  for 
"lettuce."  These  then  are  the  "2,000 
new  words  "  which  one  of  your  correspon- 
dents uses  as  a  bogey.  They  are  only 
new  in  the  sense  that  they  have  lately 
been  put  into  a  dictionary.  As  every 
fresh  word  is  a  fresh  difficulty,  because  it 
is  one  thing  more  to  remember,  Espe- 
rantists  use  up  old  material  if  possible, 
and  this  is  why  "to  waver  (in  one's 
mind)  "  was  used  instead  of  hezit-i  (to 
hesitate).  As  to  "  akuz-i  "  (to  accuse), 
the  word  kulpigi  {ie  ,  to  put  in  fault) 
really  corresponds  to  the  circumstances, 
as  Continental  law  considers  the  accused 
as  faulty  until  he  shows  he  is  not.  In 
England  (fortunately  for  usEsperantists), 
akuzi  is  not  the  same  tiling  as  kulpigi. 
Esperanto  is  on  the  right  road,  the  only 
one  which  can  lead  to  success. — Yours

My  Dear  Sir, — I  am,- of  course,  quite 
open  to  criticism  and  correction,  but  your 
reviewer,  on  p.  48  of  your  issue  of  January 
9th,  seems  to  misunderstand  the  nature 
of  an  anagram.  He  quotes,  as  a  sample 
from  my  new  Puzzle  Book,  the  answer 
I  sent  to  a  competition  question  in 
Truth,  "  Why  is  every  angler,  ipso  facto, 
an  Ananias  ?  "  My  answer  took  the 
form  of  an  anagram,  in  which  exactly  the' 
same  letteis  are  used,  and  each  is  used  once, 
and  only  once  :  "A  liar,  he  spins  gay 
fancies  to  a  woven  yarn." 

Your  reviewer,  ridiculing  this,  pro- 
poses the  question,  "  Why  is  every 
anagram  maker,  ipso  facto,  an  ass  ?  " 
and  proposes,  as  an  answer  by  anagram 
"  An  anagram  maker,  ipso  facto,  wastes 
his  own  time  with  oth  ers."    This,  as  you 

will  see  at  a  glance,  is  no  anagram  at  all. 
The  letters  of  one  sentence  are  found  hi 
the  other,  but  some  are  used  many  times 
over,  and  whole  words  recur ,  which  is  never 
allowed  in  an  anagram.  If  he  was  merely 
"  pulling  my  leg,"  I  have  no  desire  to 
kick,  but  am, — Sincerely  yours, 

(The  Rev.)  A.  Cyrix,  Pearson. 

[The  fact,  is  our  reviewer  of  the  Rev.  A. 
Cyril  Pearson's  work  is  an  angler,  and  was 
not  pulling  anybody's  leg,  only  kicking 
back.— Ed.  P.C.]

From  Mr.  Edward  Arnold. — "  A  Parson 
in  the  Australian  Bush,"  by  C.  H.  S. 
Matthews,  M.A.  The  author's  aim  has 
been  to  give  as  vivid  a  picture  of  bush  life 
as  possible,  and  only  incidentally  to  deal 
with  what  he  believes  to  be  the  reasons 
for  the  failure  of  the  Anglican  Church, 
and  every  other  form  of  organised  Chris- 
tianity, in  Australia.  It  might  be  feared 
that  the  book  would,  in  consequence,  be 
too  "  religious  "  to  suit  the  majority  of 
readers,  but  such  is  not  the  case.  The 
author  has  succeeded  in  depicting  for  us 
the  characteristics  of  Australian  life,  full 
of  humour  and  pathos,  which  should 
materially  help  to  remove  our  general 
ignorance,  and  should  be  doubly  welcome 
at  a  time  when  interest  in  our  Colonies 
is  steadily  growing. 

From  the  Same. — "  Latin  Prose  Composi- 
tion," by  W.  R.  Hardie,  M.A.,  Professor  of 
Humanity  in  the  University  of  Edinburgh. 
Oxford  men  still  remember  the  brilliant 
young  Scot  who,  a  quarter  of  a  century  ago 
entered  Balliol  as  scholar,  literally  swept 
the  boards  of  the  University  on  the 
classical  side  and  became  Fellow  and 
Tutor  of  his  College  at  twenty-two.  Con- 
tributions to  the  higher  scholarship  were 
confidently  expected  from  him,  but  hither- 
to, if  we  except  a  volume  of  Essays,  he  has 
been  content  with  mere  routine  work. 
The  present  book  is  the  direct  result  of 

that  routine  work  ;  i.e.,  it  is  the  outcome 
of  Professor  Hardie' s  long  experience  in 
teaching  both  at  Oxford  and  Edinburgh. 
His  purpose  is  to  inculcate  the  value  of 
literary  qualities  as  distinct  from  mere 
grammatical  accuracy.  He  praises  Verse 
Composition  because  it  "  has  this  great 
merit  and  value,  that  instead  of  merely 
remembering  things  and  reproducing  them 
exactly,  as  he  is  constantly  doing,  the 
pupil  for  once  produces  something  of  his 
own  that  has  an  artistic  shape."  He  sees 
no  reason  why  Prose  Composition  "  should 
not  have  a  similar  merit  or  attractiveness  "  ; 
and  it  is  to  aid  advanced  pupils  in  de- 
veloping their  artistic  sense  that  he  has 
written  this  book.  We  may  say  at  once 
that  it  is  excellently  designed  to  accom- 
plish its  author's  purpose,  that  is  to  enable 
a  student  to  view  a  piece  of  Latin  prose  as 
Cicero  might  conceivably  have  viewed  it. 
The  volume  is  divided  into  two  parts 
(which  may  be  bought  separately),  the  first 
containing  notes  on  Grammar,  Style  and 
Idiom  ;  the  second  a  selection  of  passages 
for  translation  into  Latin.  To  see  how 
effectively  Professor  Hardie  handles  his 
subject  the  intending  purchaser  has  but 
to  glance  at  the  section  on  Style.  Es- 
pecially good  are  the  pages  on  Metaphor 
and  Rhythm.  Equally  suggestive  is  the 
chapter  on  the  Resources  of  Expression  in 
Latin.  Indeed  we  are  disposed'  to  ..think 
that  this  and  the  chapter  on  Style  are, out 
and  away  the  best  of  their  kind  that  have 
appeared  in  England  dor  many  years. 
The  passages  for  translation  have  been 
chosen  with  the  judgment  of  a  brilliantly 
successful  teacher  ;  the  collection  of  moral, 
philosophical  and  literary  criticisms  being 
particularly  appropriate.  But  the  whole 
book  is  admirable,  and  may  be  recom- 
mended without  qualification  to  teachers 
and  advanced  students.

"  The  Esperanto  Manual,"  by  Margaret  L. 
Jones,  F.B.E.A.  A  complete  guide  to 
Esperanto  in  the  form  of  twenty-five 
lectures  specially  adapted  to  the  require- 
ments of  pupils  in  evening  classes.  It 
contains  exercises,  anecdotes,  aids  to 
conversational  practice,  commercial  letters 
and  guides  to  correspondence,  literary 
articles  by  foreign  contributors  and  others, 
short  poems,  complete  grammar  and  a 

vocabulary.  "  The  Esperanto  Teacher,"

From  The  Clarendon  Press,  Oxford. — 
"  School  Algebra,"  by  W.  E.  Paterson, 
M.A.,  B.Sc.  The  main  object  of  this  work 
is  to  provide  a  book  on  modern  lines  that  is 
suitable  for  the  beginner  and  can  be  con- 
tinued in  use  for  higher  forms.  In  the 
order  adopted  and  in  general  treatment  the 
suggestions  of  the  Mathematical  Asso- 
ciation have  been  largely  followed.  The 
early  chapters  are  very  full  in  explanation, 
and  are  written  in  simple,  even  colloquial, 
language.  By  means  of  examples,  some 
worked  in  the  text,  others  set  as  exercises, 
the  student  is  led  to  discover  or  verify  the 
fundamental  laws  of  Algebra.

From    Messrs.    Duckworth   &  Co. — "  Sir 

Richard  Tangye,"  by  Dr.  Stuart  J.  Reid.  I 
The  biography  of  a  man  who  started  from 
nothing  and  attained  to  wealth  and  honours 
must  always  be  interesting.  But  Sir  R. 
Tangye  was  much  more  than  a  mere 
successful  man  of  business.  He  had  a 
resolute  spirit,  a  cultivated  intellect,  a 
sympathetic  and  sunny  temperament,  and  | 
a  natural  gift  for  friendship.  The  record 
of  his  life  therefore  makes  in  the  practised 
hands  of  Dr.  Reid  a  fascinating  book, 
which  touches  at  many  points  the  religious 
and  political  movements  of  the  time,  and 
is  brightened  by  not  a  few  anecdotes.  There 
is  a  portrait  and  a  good  index. 
From  the  Same. — "  Handbook  of  Geography  : 
Descriptive  and  Mathematical,"  by  Emil 
Reich.  Vol.  2.  In  this  learned  volume 
it  is  shown,  first,  how  we  succeeded  in  deter- 
mining correctly  the  geometrical  situation 
of  a  given  town  or  hill  on  the  globe  ;  and 
secondly,  how  we  succeed  in  locating  this 
situation  on  a  given  map.  The  advantages 
to  be  derived  from  a  study  of  this  handbook 
are  such  as  are  not  easily  to  be  met  with 
elsewhere.  There  are  a  number  of  ex- 
planatory figures  in  the  text. 

From  Messrs.  Luzac  &  Co. — "  Semitic 
Magic  :  Its  Origins  and  Development," 
by  R.  Campbell-Thompson,  M.A.  (Cantab.). 
It  is  difficult  to  understand  the  attitude 
of  the  British  Museum  authorities  in 
refusing  to  allow  the  author  of  this  work 
to  study  the  unpublished  cuneiform 
Assyrian  tablets  in  the  British  Museum. 
"  Hence  the  material  at  hand  for  a  study 
of  a  most  interesting  branch  of  comparative 
religion  is  more  imperfect  than  I  could 
have  wished."  The  subjects  dealt  with 
include  "  Demons  and  Ghosts,"  "  Demo- 
niac Possession  and  Tabu,"  "  Sympathetic 
Magic,"  "  The  Atonement  Sacrifice."  The 
work  is  not  only  of  great  value  to  the 
student  of  the  special  subjects  with  which 
it  treats,  but  also  to  students  of  the  Bible 
for  the  light  it  throws  on  many  of  the 
peculiar  customs  referred  to  in  the  Old 
Testament,  and  helps  to  explain  the 
hidden  reason  why  these  customs  existed. 
To  student  of  Man  throughout  t  te  ages 
this  work  must  also  be  most  valuable. 
There  is  a  really  splendid  index,  w.iich  will  ] 
open  its  wealth  of  information  to  all  kinds  ! 
of  searchers  after  knowledge.  Under  "  A,"  | 
for  instance,  we  find  references  to  Ants  in 
Magic  ;  Alkali  in  Magic  ;  Arm  in  Magic  ;  ( 
Ash  in  Magic  ;  Ass  in  Magic,  and  so  on  I 
through  t'\e  whole  alphabet.  Between 
the  superstition  which  amounts  to  a  half 
regret  at  seeing  the  new  moon  through  a 
glass  window  and  the  superstition  w  ich  is 
related!  to  every  act  and  thought  of  life  the  | 

distance  is  indeed  great.  They  believed 
that  every  being  had  innumerable  demons  ; 
we  seem  to  be  losing  our  belief  in  the 
existence  even  of  one  for  the  whole  lot  of 
us.  Since  the  above  was  in  type,  we  were 
amused  from  a  private  letter  of  Mr. 
W.  Clark  Russell  to  find  he  pretends  to 
believe  we  are  in  for  a  bad  time,  because 
this  year  commenced  on  a  Friday.  He 
says  it  is  his  only  superstition,  but  that 
nothing  would  induce  him  to  commence 
any  important  business  on  a  Friday  ;  he 
even  seems  to  regret  that  the  Messina 
earthquake  did  not  happen  on  a  Friday,  as 
it  clearly  ought  to  have  done  in  the 
interests  of  the  "  Friday  "  superstition.
